Education sometime this semester, 
according to Jack Damico, Student 
Body Assn. president. 

The issue, which was first raised 
two years ago, was somehow

was due to a communications mix-up 
in the senate, according to Damico, 
and the problem has now been 

A Special Services Committee has 
been set up to handle the beer 
proposal as well as additional sub- 
committees to make up a student 
lobby force for the Constitutional 
Convention and a black studies and 
research committee. 

The Senate Appeals Committee will 
research the prospect of selling beer 
on campus and will present findings 
to the senate before its presentation 
to the state board. 

"As long as the members of the 
State Board of Education perform 
their duties to maintain excellence in 
higher education, keeping the rights 
of the students foremost in mind, I 
have no doubts their decision will be 
just," said Damico. 

"Since the (state) Constitution 
guarantees 18-year-olds all rights and 
since there are no community 
regulations against the proposal, I 
don't think the university should be an 
isolated incident." 

Survey supports 
midterm grades 

It seems the issue of whether to 
discontinue mid-term grades has 
been dropped due to lack of student 
support . 

According to Carol Doolan who 
conducted a survey of 200 students 
this summer, the majority felt that 
no change was needed. 

The subject first came up last year 
and a committee studied the present 
system and devised alternate plans. 
Other than dropping the whole idea 
of mid-semester grading a plan for 
individual evaluation or posting of 
grades was suggested. 

registration figures with the addition 
of students at the NSU branches. Of 
the fall estimate, approximately 4,500 
students are on the Natchitoches 

Students, too, faced a price increase 
this semester with $21 more paid by 
full-time on-campus students. 
Registration fees went up about $6 
and the yearbook price, under Student 
Assn. fees, went up $3. Mrs. Laura 

Lavespere, controller, said the State 
Board of Education decides when 
registration fees go up and the 
yearbook increase was approved in a 
student referendum last fall. 

The other increase for students was 
an additional $15 to the meal ticket 
charge, as was the case at most 
universities this year. 

Meat Problems 

Despite high prices and meat 
shortages, Radcliffe did manage to 
get enough meat and supplies for the 
summer but he foresees difficulties 

"We had difficulties getting meat. 
At times, the cafeteria's menu had to 
be changed because we were short of a 
particular meat," he said. 

Bacon, pork chops roast beef and 
canned meat were hard to obtain. But 
eggs, chicken, steak, ground beef, ham 
and fish were easily supplied - for a 

He said steak that was $1.94 per lb. 
in the spring is now $2.94; chickens 
have gone up 20 cents a pound, ham 57 
cents more a pound and pork chops 

are 40 cents more per pound. 

He reported that the food purveyors 
were also shorting him on some of the 
orders which they could not fill. 

"During the summer I got the meat 
because fewer students were enrolled 
at the university. I don't know if I 

can get enough meat now that the 
enrollment has increased," he said. 
Ceiling Lift 

With the ceiling off beef, some experts 
predict a surge in prices and a depletion 
of supplies. 

Officials at Saga foods have sent 
notices to their managers of possible 
problems. A notice received here last 
week stated: 

"The forces of inflation caused by 
increasing demands and falling 
supply are going to give us a food 
situation in raw products procurement 
that few of us have ever had to face. 
It's going to be difficult in September 
and October and will get tougher in 
December and January. 

We will pay at least 10-15 percent 
more for raw food than last year. 

If your contract (Radcliffe's) call for 
unlimited seconds, you are going to 
be faced with saying, 'Sorry no 
seconds on meat." 

Yet Radcliffe is determined to keep 
the policy of seconds on all foods and 
will do so as long as possible. 

In answer to inquiries about the 
hamburgers, he stated that the meat 
is 95 percent beef and five percent 
soybean mix. He noted that this is the- 
same protein mix as used by many 
restaurants and drive-in hamburger 
shops in Natchitoches. 

THE ORDEAL — Everyone needs pencils, pens, eraser and a lot 
of patience to make it through the registration ordeal 
unscathed — at least until next semester.

Student senate proposes 
library hours extension 

Last week the SBA unanimously 
passed a bill calling for the extension 
of the Watson Library operational 
hours, and this bill has been for- 
warded to Dr. Arnold Kilpatrick's 
office for consideration. 

Rodney Harrington, vice president 
of the SBA and student services 
chairman, and Jack Damico, SBA 
president co-sponsored a proposal 
extending the library's hours. Their 
revised recommendations call for the 
library to beopen from 7:30a.m. to 


Wednesday, Sept. 26, is the last date 
for students to sign up for refunds or 
to purchase student insurance, 
according to Dr. Richard Galloway, 
vice president of student affairs. 

Persons wishing to insure them- 
selves and their spouse and depen- 
dents may now do so under a new 

12 p.m., Monday through Thursday, 
from 7:30 a. m. to 5 p. m., Friday, 
from 9a.m. to 5: p.m. Saturday.and 
from 2 p.m. to 12p.m. Sunday. 

Robbie Fowlkes, a member of the 
Student Services committee, said that 
the bill represents an improved 
service to the university students. 
The bill is formulated to help the 
students obtain the resources in the 
library at a convenient time," he said. 

Donald MacKenzie , Watson 
librarian, claimed that the extension 
of the library hours would be un- 
feasible at this time. "The library is 
a nice place to study and I don't 
blame students for wanting to do so 
there, but at the present time we 
because of under-staffing, could not 
meet the stipulations of this bill." He 
said that his decision is subject to the 
approval of Dr. Frank Martin, vice 
president of Research, Planning and 
Development and Dr. Kilpatrick. 

Brown," on Sept. 20 and end with Jose 
Feliciano for the Christmas Festival 
Dec. 1. 

According to Doug Nichols, en- 
tertainment chairman of the Union 
committee, one more group will be 
contracted for October or November. 

Nichols admitted to the difficulties 
in booking groups to perform at NSU - 
-the biggest of which is money. 

"Any group we could have gotten last 
year for $5,000 has gone up to $10,000 
this year and we just can't afford 
them," Nichols said. 

A solution to the high prices that 
has been successful for some schools 
is the "block book." Several schools in 
the same approximate area contract 
one group to perform at each school. 
To be able to use the block method, 
the universities must charge at the 
door rather than allow entrance on 
ID alone. NSU and Louisiana Tech 
are the only state universities that 
still use the ID only system, according 
to Nichols. 

Other difficulties in contracting 
name entertainment are the airport 
locations (Alexandria or Shreveport), 
small crowds, and no market value. 


Nichols said, "Most entertainers fly 
these days and when they find out 
they have to rent cars for themselves 
and trucks for equipment and then 
drive 60 or 70 miles, they just won't 

Also the city is not big enough to 
draw large crowds in the middle of 
the week, he said. This affects the 
market value for records. "After a 
group plays in a city they expect 
their record sales to increase, and in 

Natchitoches, this just doesn't hap- 
pen," said Nichols. 

The chairman also gave the steps 
in contracting an entertainer to 
perform at NSU. 

Red Tape 

The dates when performers will be 
in this general area is the first con- 
sideration of the entertainment 
committee. A group or single must 
have at least three shows scheduled 
in one area before agreeing to come. 
A telegram is then sent to the 
booking agency handling the desired 
performer confirming that contracts 
are wanted. The contracts are sent to 
NSU, unsigned by the performer for 
the committee chairman to sign and 

At any point in the initial tran- 
sactions the performer may cancel 
the proposed concert. Only after the 
agency has returned the contracts to 
NSU with the performer's signature 
can the committee be reasonably sure 
of a concert. Every contract contains 
a clause stating that the performer 
may cancel the concert up to 30 days 
before the scheduled appearance. 
Also if the performer becomes ill, he 
may cancel but must give the 
university an option to reschedule. 

The performers are paid in full after 
each concert. 

Persons desiring to become 
members of the Entertainment 
Committee should apply in the 
Student union Governing Board of- 
fice. All applicants are interviewed by 
the board. 

A survey is planned for later in the 
semester to gather the students' 
choices for entertainment during the 
spring semester, Nichols said. 

Undercover agent relates personal experiences 

fricky Prudhomme 

By Vela Temple 

What happens when a person's 
family and friends suspect that he 
has gone off the deep end into the 
drug scene? 

Dicky Prudhomme, a narcotics 
agent with the NatchUoches Sheriff's 
Department, experienced this dilemma 
when he was placed in the un- 
derground narcotics division in Oc- 
tober 1972. 

For almost 10 months Prudhomme 
convinced all but five prominent men 
of Natchitoches that he had decided 
to abandon society and had become a 
member of the drug culture. 

Prudhomme's fight against drug 
usage stems from his best friend's 
death from an overdose of heroin 

several years ago. Finally this fight 
culminated in a staged argument 
between him and Chief of Police 
Harry Hyams to furnish him the 
cover that he needed to conceal his 
identity as an underground narcotics 

Prudhomme, a former insurance 
salesman turned police officer, 
received his information from those 
closest to the drug users. Their 
reasoning for tipping off the police 
was to stop their friends illegal use of 
drugs. The police was their last 
alternative, they felt. 

The 29-year-old narcotics agent 
said, "The reason for persons using 
drugs was at first believed to be fad, 
but now I think the users are trying 
to escape reality and also because of 

encouragement from the pusher. 

All classes of people use drugs, he 
asserted with marijuana the most 
popularly used drug. It is not the 
chief interest of the division's fight 
against drugs, though, Prudhomme 

The use of mescaline, cocaine and 
heroin is not wide spread, but is on the 
increase, Chief of Police Harry 
Hyams noted. There are some users 
of drug substitutes such as aerosol 
cooking oils and deodorants. 

"Many people are down on the 
narcotics division because of former 
busts, but the information received 
about drugs is from the general 
public. Friends of many arrested for 
drugs have been the source for their 
arrests' .said Prudhomme. 

The selling of drugs is a matter of 
economics for the pusher," said 
Hyams. "He seldom uses the drug 
but keeps his head clear to make 
more money and not make 

Not Isolated to NSU 

Out of the 34 arrests made in 
Natchitoches since June 23, 22 were 
not NSU students. "We are not down 
on NSU students and even if the 
college wasn't here there would still 
be a drug problem," continued 

"We are not down on marijuana 
itself, but it is illegal and we will 
protect the law," said Prudhomme. 

Vice-President of Student Affairs 
Dr. Richard Galloway said, "I an- 
ticipate that we'll continue to have a 

problem with the use and selling of 
illegal drugs." 

"We don't want to become alarmists 
because the past publicity we have 
received makes the university seem 
as if everyone here uses drugs," 
continued Galloway. "But, at the 
same time we don't want to stick our 
heads in the sand and make it seem 
as if there is no drug problem." 

Galloway explained that if a 
student is found using drugs by 
campus officials disciplinary action 
by the university can be authorized. 

Campus security tries to stay in- 
formed with drugs on campus and 
they maintain contact with law en- 
forcement agencies of all kinds, 
Galloway said. There are occasional 
narcotics agents who register as 
students in order to catch the drug 
users, he continued.

Dollars and sense 

Many questions race through a new- 
student's mind the first time he ap- 
proaches the Northwestern entrance 
and confronts 89 years of educational 
tradition. Running the gamut from 
"Where's the best place to get loaded?" 
to "Ho w can I manage to pick up a little 
action around here?" these queries 
reflect the typical student's stereotyped 
attitude toward beginning college and 
his relationship to that beginning. 
College life, he imagines, is one long 
succession of fraternity-sorority beer 
busts, socially stimulating outdoor rock 
concerts, and totally "with-it" 
discussions on the nature of the human 
libido. Some students even manage to 
cling to this myth throughout their four- 
year (or more) stay. 

But somewhere, sometime, somehow 
en route in procuring the diploma that 
everyone at home insists is a must in 
this "era of scientific and technological 
advances," the typical student probes 
the value of his own education. After he 
has been sufficiently rushed, pledged, 
and activated by the most popular 
fraternity on campus and after he has 
seen, done, and experienced everything 
on his list of priorities, the typical 
student's thoughts turn to that post- 
graduation period and to the academie-

monetary corollary. His typical 
questions: Will I be able to find a job 
when I leave Northwestern? Am I 
really trained or skilled to do anything? 
Is my degree worth the effort? 

According to a study recently 
prepared through the office of Dr. 
Richard H. Galloway, vice president of 
student affairs, the education that a 
student receives at Northwestern does 
prepare him to enter the highly com- 
petitive job market of the '70's and to 
win the placement battle. The survey, 
based on 971 returned questionnaires 
from a list of almost 3500 Northwestern 
graduates (1967-72) polled on their 
university training, indicated both 
areas of satisfaction and improvement. 
And while the 28 percent return 
response of the graduates contacted is 
admittedly inconclusive, the study 
nonetheless serves as a makeshift 
barometer in gauging the value of a 
Northwestern degree. 

Adequate Training 

From the combined respondent total 
of the six undergraduate colleges 
comprising the university's academic 
set-up, 86 percent felt that their training 
at Northwestern was adequate. Eighty- 
nine(89) percent of this same overall 
group claimed that their degree was 

instrumental in obtaining employment, 
and 79 percent added that their in- 
dividual major was helpful in securing 
a job. But of the total, only none (9) 
percent had gone on to receive an ad- 
ditional degree since leaving Nor- 

"We're continually attracting a 
better quality of students," said Dr. 
Galloway, in commenting on the 
favorable response garnered from the 
surveyed Northwestern graduates. "At 
one time, the pressure placed on 
students by their parents caused 
colleges to accept many students not 
motivated to get an education. We will 
have a great number of students who do 
not belong in college and we've pushed 
a lot of young people into college who 
had no desire to be there. But all in all, 
high school students are much better 
prepared as a group to handle college 
level work today than ever before." 

Dr. Galloway added that with the 
elimination of the draft, a past impetus 
which propeUed students by the droves 
into centers of higher learning, and 
with the rising costs nation-wide in 
obtaining an education, universities 
could continue to expect a trend toward 
the more serious student. 

A major shortcoming mentioned by 



Just what is the value of a Northwestern diploma? 

survey respondents was the need for 
more practical experience, more in- 
tensive and earlier in the college 
curriculum, to accompany the 
theoretical basis of the educational 
procedure. Most graduates of the 
College of Education who returned the 
opinion poll indicated that "earlier 
exposure to and work in the classroom" 
is needed, liberal arts graduates 
generally agreed that "more career 
guidance from their departments would 
have strengthened the programs." 
Those graduates of the College of 
Business expressed "concern over a 
lack of practical application of 
theoretical knowledge." 

"We're going to have to move the 
college out of four walls," Dr. Galloway 
continued. "Students in this study 

generally mentioned that more em- 
phasis on the practical as well as the 
textbook application is needed. I hope 
we will consider what these students 
are saying." 

The College of Education scored well 
on this point, with 89 percent of their 
surveyed graduates responding that 
their Northwestern training was 
adequate. Eighty (80) percent of the 
Liberal Arts graduates questioned 
approved of the education received at 
Northwestern and 77 percent of the 
graduates of the College of Science & 
Technology indicated they were 
satisfied with the quality of education

One More Idea 

An Introduction — More or Less 

Writing an editorial column is not necessarily 
as simple as one might suspect, and writing an 
original (more or less) introductory offering is 
possibly the most tedious task of the whole 
assignment. But while there is something about 
the beginning of a semester and a publication 
year that engenders the need for some sort of 
preface to my editorial comments, and while I 
feel disinclined to flout this traditional 
propriety, there are just some occasions when 
even words fail. 

Perhaps some babblings on press freedom 
and journalistic privilege and newspaper 
expression might be appropriate, but textbook 
nobility looks just a little too good in print. 
Some equally self-righteous, self-satisfying 
wandering about uncovering sham and pretense 
and righting these in short order might be the 
expedient measure of the moment, but a self- 
structured soap box can be a rather precarious 
foothold. Even that old standard "good-to-be- 
back-and-time-to-hit-the-books" drivel might 
serve the immediate purpose, but who needs a 
lecture on individual motivation and resource 

And so, rational selectivity has left me without 
an introductory editorial, (more or less) Maybe I 
don't even need one after all. 

The SBA s "New Direction" 
Criticism often falls upon the student 
government of any university, and these 
editorial barbs are often initiated from the 
editor's typewriter of the student publication. 
Frequent references to that ego-inflated 
"student politician" who somehow conjures up 
the notion that his position is but a stepping 
stone to future greatness, to those 
misappropriated funds that just should not have 
been spent, and to the manipulation -- bordering 
on subterfuge -that occurs in working toward a 
desired end all make for interesting comment 
and controversial discussion. Like my 
predecessors, I'm not so naive as to believe the 
Northwestern SBA has not had, or does not 
now have, or will not continue to have, its share 

of egotists in residence, questionable 
expenditures, or behind-the-scenes chicanery. 

But the present SBA administration stormed 
into office last March with promises of "New 
- Directions in '73", and, despite the traditional 
flaws that pop up in governmental operation, 
they appear headed in the right one. 

The 1973-74 edition of Northwestern student 
government seems ready to listen to new ideas, 
proposals and plans. They seem eager to discuss 
and debate these new possibilities, not content 
to accept illogically or reject systematically 
J whatever is thrown out on the bargaining table 
without due consideration. 

SBA 73-74 has the potential to accomplish 
more than any of its forerunners (though some 
might argue that this is hardly a difficult boast 
to match) in the area of beneficial legislation. 
They have the potential to rid themselves of 
the "political syndrome" stigma that too often 
accompanies those members more intent on 
admiring the prominence of their 8 x 10's 
displayed in the Student union than on 
performing any type of student service. 

Rose-colored glasses are not a prerequisite to 
viewing student government, nor do they 
disguise those elements detrimental to its 
proper functioning. I would be the last to claim 
that mistakes are not in the offing or that 
dissension is a non-existent feature of the SBA. 

But the present administration, including the 
executive authority and the senatorial 
leadership, promises to uplift and upgrade the 
image of student government on this campus. 
The potential is there. And with a little luck, 
Jack Damico can steer the SBA toward those 
"New Directions" that he pointed to at the

On behalf of the Student Union Governing 
Board, I would like to welcome everyone back 
to NSU. The dawn of the 1973-74 school year is 
now upon us; summer vacation is over and it's 
time to get back to the old giind. But studying 
is not all there is to college, though. This year is 
shaping up to be the best ever for the Student 
Union Governing Board, as we once again 
work hard to provide top notch entertainment 
and activities for you. 

I must stress this one point: This is YOUR 
Student Union. The Union is only as good as its 
committees. Get involved and join these 
committees. Have a voice in the activities you 
pay for and participate in. It's an excellent 
opportunity to meet and deal with new people. 
They are a lot of fun and the experiences that 
you gain are indeed rewarding. 

Why not come by the committee office in the 
Student Union and join up.

"The tobacco budworm is a 
serious threat to reduce cotton 
production in Natchitoches 
Parish," Stevens said. "Early 
cotton crops usually sustain 
about 25 percent damage 
because of tabacco budworm 
infestation, but some of the 
later cotton crops have been 
known to lose 80 to 90 percent 
of their expected yields." 
Recognized Problem 

According to Stevens, 
tobacco budworm infestation 
became a recognized problem 
in 1969 but did very little 

Last year was the first year 
the disease has caused 
significant damage. 

"The Environmental 
Protection Agency had 
already made its decision to 

take DDT off the market when 
myself and others found that a 
mixture of toxaphene and 
DDT was the only mixture we 
had that would control the 
tobacco budworm," said 
Stevens. "It was about this 
time last year that we 
discovered this, but the EPA 
had already made its decision 
to take DDT off the market." 
Concentrated Effort 
According to Stevens, 
scientists from Louisiana 

State University made a 
concentrated effort last year 
to have DDT reapproved for 
use on cotton, but they were 
turned down. 

Stevens said that in the 
early 1950's, DDT was used 
alone as a major controller of 
worms. After worms began 
building a resistence against 
DDT, toxaphene was used 
alone and was a good con- 
troller for a while before it 
became ineffective. 

Louisiana will be urged to 
recruit students and make 
financial contributions to 
NSU. These contributions are 
tax deductible and can be 
donated to any campus 
project the donor prefers. 

Last year $1.5 billion was 
given to higher educational 
institutions by private 
donors. Northwestern has 
previously not encouraged its 
friends' support in this area. 

To accomplish the goal of 
alumnae concern for NSU, 
student co-operation is 
essential, Ellis said. Project

Performance) will be an effort

NSU dethrones Lions 
in 24-0 embarrassment® 

Sidney Thornton bursts through a hole in the 
East Texas State defense during the Demons' 

24-0 shellacking of the Lions at State Fair 

Stadium in Shreveport Saturday night. 

By Dan McDonald 
Sauce Sports Editor 

Last year the East Texas 
State University lions were 
chosen ahead of Northwestern 
to represent the area in the 
national NAIA football 

For nine months the 
Demons have been smarting 
from this snubbing. Now their 
pride has returned. 

In front of 7,000 (mostly 
Demon) fans at State Fair 
Stadium in Shreveport, NSU 
handed the defending national 
champs a decisive 24-0 pasting 
Saturday night. 

To put it bluntly, the Demons 
were devastating. Their 
offensive front blasted out 
huge holes in the vaunted Lion 
defensive line, and the back- 
field corps of Mario Cage.

Three celebrated Nor 
th western baseball stars 
from the 1973 season 
recently completed out- 
standing summer seasons in 
two nationally known 
semipro leagues. 

Pitcher Dennis Choate of 
Natchitoches and first 
baseman Darryl Woods of 
New Orleans, the pitching 
and batting stars for Nor- 
thwestern State University's 
baseball last spring, sparked 
the Hutchinson, Kan. Broncs 
to the Victory Semipro 
League championship this 

The Broncs fashioned a 48- 
10 won-lost record while 
compiling a 13-3 league 

Choate, a sophomore 
righthander this spring, had 
a 5-2 won-lost record for the 
Broncs and an outstanding 
1.09 earned run averaged. He 
struck out 43 batters in 41 1' 3 
innings and issued only 16 

In addition, Choate was

(Kan.) Athletics late in the 
summer. Dodge City com- 
peted in the Semipro 
National Tournament, 
winning two games and 
losing two. 

Woods, a 6-foot-8, 260- 
pounder who led the NCAA 
College Division in runs 
batted in during the past 
season, blasted seven home 
runs and drove in 36 runs in 
55 games for the Broncs. He 
also slammed 10 doubles, one 
triple and batted .272. Woods 
was second on the team in 
home runs, doubles and 

He was the only player on 
the squad to appear in as 
many as 55 games and led 
the team in at bats with 187. 

Bobby Hrapmann, a star 

infielder for Northwestern 
State University during the 
last three baseball seasons, 
completed his summer 
baseball season by being 
named to the Cape Cod

League's All -Star team. 

Hrapmann, a New Orleans 
product who has one season 
of eligibility remaining at 
NSU, led the Massachusetts 
semipro baseball league in 
doubles, stolen bases and 
runs scored. While stealing 
10 bases, slamming nine 
doubles and scoring 23 runs, 
Hrapmann also placed sixth 
in the league with a .330 
batting average. 

The Cape Cod League is 
comprised of outstanding 
college players all over the 
nation. The teams are 
managed by former major 
league players.

was played at Yankee 
Stadium, Hrapmann rapped 
two hits in helping his team 
to a 13-7 victory over the 

Atlantic League all-stars.

Broken foot hasn't stopped White 

Some people may think 
Northwestern State Football 
Coach George Doherty is 
stretching the truth when he 
says, "Our injury situation is 
so bad that one of our starting 
linebackers will play with a 
broken foot." 

But the fact is, senior 
linebacker James White (6-4, 
196) of Shreveport does have a 
broken foot-and he will be in 
the starting lineup Saturday 
night when the Demons open 
their 1973 home season against 
Southwest Oklahoma. 

White actually broke his 
right foot during the middle of 
the football season last year, 
but decided to finish out the 
season before having 
surgery. X-rays showed last 
week that one of the 
metatarsal bones has still not 
healed despite surgery in the 
off season. 

"His foot has caused him a 
great deal of pain," NSU 
athletic trainer Eugene 
Christmas said of White. 
"James' foot swells every 

time he does much running." 

Doherty said that White is 
kept out of many of NSU's 
drills so his foot won't stay 
swollen. "I asked James the 
other day if he realized he was 
going to have to play this year 
with a broken foot," Doherty 
said. "That's not going to 
bother me," White replied. 

It's really hard to tell if a 
broken foot hurts White's 
performance on the field. "He 
still goes 100 percent all the 
time," says graduate 
assistant Coach Joey McGoey, 
who coaches the linebackers. 
"He's a dedicated young 

White has always been 
known for his pass defense as 
a linebacker. His long arms 
make it difficult for quar- 
terbacks to find a receiver 
between the linebackers and 
the deep secondary. 

In his defense against the 
run, White has improved 
considerably since last year. 
"He's been hitting as hard as 
anybody we've got this fall," 

Doherty says. "If his foot 
doesn't bother him too much, 

he's gonna be one heck'uva 
linebacker for us this year." 




DETERMINED DEMON — A broken foot has not 

hampered linebacker James White's road to 
stardom. One of the leaders of the Demon 
defensive unit, White will be in the starting 
lineup Saturday night when NSU hosts 
Southwest Oklahoma. 

Cox and Butch Ballard were 
also impressive with a sur- 
prising passing attack, as 
each hit on a scoring toss. 

On the opposite side, the 
NSU defense shut out ETSU 
for the first time in 31 games. 
Only three times did the 
Demon defenders allow the 
lions to move the ball into 
Northwestern territory, and 
the visitors from Texas never 
even mounted a serious 
scoring threat. 

It's no telling how lopsided 
the game would have been if 
the Demons had not fumbled 
away scoring opportunities on 
four occasions. But the 24 
points turned out to be enough . 
It's doubtful that the Lions will 
be back in the near future. 

NSU stuck to its vaunted 
ground game, as in the past, 
and rolled up 362 total yards- 
271 of them on the overland 
route. Although he did not 
figure in the scoring, Cage led 
the slaughter with 115 yards 
on 20 trips through the East 
Texas defense. 

Mike Harter began the 
Demon onslaught early in the 
first stanza when he hit 

paydirt from six yards out to 
cap a 26-yard drive, set up by 
Mike Doherty's fumble 
recovery. Randy Walker 
connected on the PAT, it was 
7-0, and Northwestern was 

Walker was in on the action 
again early in period number 
two when, after Danny 
Driskill and John Dilworth 
combined to force a Lion 
fumble, he connected on a 42- 
yard field goal, the longest of 
his career and only four yards 
short of the school record held 
by his brother Wayne. 

The Demons mounted their 
first sustained scoring drive of 
the game on their first 
possession of the second half. 

Thanks to a pair of key 
penalties and a 21-yard sweep 
by Cage, the Demon team 
marched to the East Texas 
nine. Two plays netted 
nothing, and it looked like 
Walker would be trying an- 
ther three-pointer. 

Quarterback Cox went wide 
on third down in what ap- 
peared to be the familiar 
option. But Wilton suddenly 
stopped and rifled a pass to

pack," I 
I hope so 

Just about everything has 
been said about Nor- 
thwestern 's star kicker Randy 
Walker, who is primed for his 
final season of collegiate 
football. Walker has his goals 
set high this season... much 
higher than the height of his 
booming punts. 

"There's no reason why I 
can't average 44 or 45 yards 
this year," says the 5-10, 178- 
pounder out of Bossier City. "I 
got off a couple of bad punts 
last year that messed by 
average up. I think youH see 
me punting more punts in the 
corner of the field and inside 
the 10-yard line." 

As everyone knows, 
Walker, an All-Gulf South 
Conference punter and an All- 
Louisiana placekicker in 1972, 
is following in the footsteps of 
his older brother, Wayne. 
Wayne was a star kicker for 
the Demons until he left in 1965 
to pursue pro careers with the . 
Kansas City Chiefs, Houston 
Oilers, and New Orleans 
Saints. Walker led the Oilers 
in scoring one season, despite 
missing half the year. 

"Wayne gives me a lot of 
confidence," Randy con- 
fesses. "If I get down on 
myself, he tells me what I'm 
doing wrong and pumps me 
up. He's been a big help." 

Walker, who admits he's 
interested in a pro football 
career, drew raves from pro 
scouts last year and will 
likely draw attention this 
season. But, first things first, 
says Randy, commenting 
"We've got a GSC cham- 
pionship to win." 

"One phase of our game 
we don't have to worry about 
as long as Randy Walker's 

around," says NSU Head 
Football Coach George 

Doherty, "and that's 
kicking game."

Cross country se? 
for sequel to 197£ 

By Danny Anderson 

Northwestern's State's 
cross country team will be 
nothing to sneeze at in the 
coming season and any way 
you look at it, that spells bad 
news for opponents. 

"We have a tremendous 
group of kids," said Coach 
Jerry Dyes. All of them are 
hard workers and all of them 
have the desire to excel. We 
should be as good as we 
were last year." 

That may be hard to do. 
Last season, the team went 
undefeated in ten regular 
season meets. The only losses 
came in the NCAA College 
Division meet at Chicago 
and the NAIA meet at 
Kansas City. 

"We were just worn down 
by the time we got to those 
meets," explained Dyes. 
"This year we've scheduled 
only seven meets, and of 
course, we'll return to the 
NAIA Championships. We 
have hopes that we won't be as 
dog-tired as we were last 

The team, itself, is well 
stocked with talent. Dyes can 
look forward to the return of 
five freshmen off last year's 
team. Only one new face is 
on the roster but that face 
belongs to freshman sen- 
sation Jimmy Roche, the 
Louisiana state champion in 
Quad A competition last year 

when he ran for Brother 
Martin out of New Orleans. 

"We'll be ready by

Charles H. Stout, a 29-year 
old former all-star coach in 
the Air Force, will be Nor- 
thwestern State University's 
graduate assistant basketball 
coach for the 1973-74 season, 
according to an an- 
nouncement by NSU president 
Dr. Arnold R. Kilpatrick. 

Stout's primary duties will 
be recruiting, scouting and 
coaching the Demon freshman 
basketball team, according to 
NSU Head Basketball Coach 
Tynes Hildebrand. Assistant 
Basketball Coach Jack Herron 
rounds out the NSU cage staff. 

A native of Denver, Colo, 
and a graduate of Taylor- 
sville, Ky. High School, 
Stout's career coaching 
record for six seasons is a 
phenomenal 115-27 (.894). He 
has coaching experience on 
the junior high and high school 
level in addition to coaching 
all-star military teams. 

After getting a bachelors 
degree from the University of 
Kentucky in 1966, Stout helped 
coach his former high school 
team to an 18-3 record. 

Last season Stout took over 
a Pryor Junior High team in 
Fort Walton Beach, Fla. that 
had won only eight games in 
two years and produced a 12- 
5 record. 

The Northwestern State 
University Demons will be

the Southwest Oklahoma 
Bulldogs at 7:30 in Demon 

The Bulldogs of 
Weatherford, Okla., handed 
NSU one of its two defeats 
during last year's 8-2 
campaign, capturing the 
season opener 7-3. In that 
game, the Demons failed to 
get their offensive machine 
moving and were held 
without a touchdown for only 
the second time in the last 
four seasons. Their only 
entry on the scoreboard was 
a 21-yard field goal by Randy 

Much of Southwest 
Oklahoma's success on the 
gridiron this fall will depend 
upon whether they can find 
a replacement for two-year 
All-Conference quarterback 
Ford Farris. 

If head coach Otis 
Delaporte can find an 
adequate replacement at the 
signal-calling position, the 
Bulldogs could very likely 
return to the top of the tough 
Oklahoma Collegiate 
Athletic Conference. Being at 
the head of the pack will not 
be a strange position, as they 
have copped the conference 
title in four of the last five

Little, was the No. 1 quar-

Southwestern returns 22 
lettermen and 14 starters 
from an 8-3 team of last 
year, including Ail-American 
candidates Ronnie Williams 
and Carlton "Buck" 

Only a sophomore in 1972, 
Williams rushed for 1,092 
yards on 249 carries. In one 
contest last fall, he really 
came into his own, rushing 
for 240 yards and scoring 
three touchdowns in a 35-0 
shellacking of league foe 
Northwestern Oklahoma. 

While Williams was 
cracking the 1,000-yard 

barrier, Buchanan, a 6-4, 240- 
pound tackle, was teaming 

Linebacker Mike 

Bulldog stopper 

with linebacker Mike Osborn 
on the other side of the line 
to compile one of the 
country's top defensive units. 
The Dogs were among the 
national leaders in nearly 
every statistical unit, and 
eight people who saw 
starting action at one time 
or another are back. 

Besides Buchanan and 
Osborn, linemen Phil Layton 
and Tommy Randolph 
return, along with linebacker 
Judson McHenry and part- 
time secondary starters Tim 
Reynolds and Rick Weber. 

On offense, Southwestern 

will have an even half-dozen 
players who were regular

performers a year ago. 
Linemen Bill Burton and

Equality for women big 

•:• Are women in the United States 
v really being discriminated against in 

1973? Are the feminine cries for 
v "equality" the voices of a dissatisfied 
•:• majority or simply a vocal minority?

U. S. Constitution, forbidding sex 
;> discrimination, is now up for

:|: Questions and more questions. And

:|:has risen to prominence quite sud- 
•jidenly, with everything from bra-

tics. But headline grabbers come and 
xgo.and some observers of the "new" 
:•: movement dismiss it as merely the 
:•: latest in a long series of rallying 
:•: causes of a restless generation. 
:•: The fact is that the "new" women's 
:•: movement is hardly new, and the 
:•: battle for sexual equality didn't start 
£ yesterday, either. It roots lay in cen- 

turies of development toward 
Apolitical democracy, which is based on 
|:| the precept that "all men are equal." 
|:| This democratic ideal, even as it 
;i| was first set forth in J. J. Rousseau's 
£ Social Contract in 1762, ignores 
v women : it is a fact that women have 
•:| never been regarded as men's equals 
•:• — socially, politically, or economic- 
•:• ally. It is interesting to note that 
%: medieval theologians argued that 

women had no soul and were more 
£ prone to sin, and that later 
x generations maintained that women 
:j: were incapable of abstract thought, 
•:• reasoning, or creativity.

:•: individuals in determining the course 
xof their own government. Women were 
:•: denied this same power. 

x At that time, the argument against 
:•: these rights for women ran something 
:•: like this: The husband enjoyed his 
:•: civil rights on behalf of his family, 
:•: and this included his wife. Women did 
x not need to vote because they voted 
:•: "through" their husbands. 
:•: Before the Industrial Revolution, 
:•: sexual role-playing with regard to 
X work was practically non-existent. The 
economies of most societies then were 
X based upon agriculture and small 
£ crafts, and the entire household was 
•:• involved in earning and working for 
& the family livelihood. Work was a 
•:• family business, not just a man's 
x business. 

:•: The change came when the small 
x craftsman succumbed to mass 
x production and small farms became 
x larger-scale operations. The gulf 
x between women's work and men's 
x work became wider as men began to 
:•: work mainly outside the home. 

Women evolved into domestic animals

uneducated women soon became 
exploited as a source of cheap, second 
class labor, excluded from the guilds. 

This stratification of the woman's 
ro le in a male-dominated world was 
challenged in the 19th century by 
middle class women. Many women in 
this class could not find husbands 
who could support a wife and family

work as undesirable alternatives, 
these middle class women were 
forced to either support themselves 
with jobs as governesses or rely on

their station in life. 

The right to vote came to the 
American woman in 1920 with the 
passage of the 19th Amendment to the 
Constitution. Women are now able to 
vote in most countries. 

Economic directions for women 
began to change only about 50 years 
ago as the social position of women 
began to gradually improve 
throughout most of the world. 
Marriage laws have become less one- 
sided, although a woman is still 
regarded as her husband's dependent 
when it comes to taxation, pensions, 
and insurance. 

The ERA 

The Equal Rights Amendment 
(ERA) was passed on Aug. 10, 1970 by 
the U. S. House of Representatives. 
The Senate followed suit in the spring 
of 1972 by passing the amendment by 
an overwhelming majority. The 
present status of the ERA is un-

Cheering squad reveals talen&l

The "New Look edition of 
Northwestern State 
University cheerleader 
squad was unveiled Saturday 
night at the NSU-East 
Texas State football game in 
Shreveport with the ap- 
pearance of the eight- 
member squad on the field. 

The cheerleader program at 
Northwestern was 
reorganized during the 
summer semester with the 
approval of eight 60-hour work 
scholarships for the 
cheerleaders as well as two 
part-time scholarships for the 
alternates. Under the 
direction of SBA President 
Jack S. Damico and members 
of the National Cheerleader 
Assn., the cheerleaders were 
selected in open tryouts this 

In competition with other 
university cheerleaders at the 
annual National Spirit and 
Sportsmanship Workshop on 
the Southern Mississippi 
campus last month, the 
cheerleaders received three 
superior ratings. Excellent 
ratings were awarded to the 
Northwestern cheerleaders 
during the daily judging of 
cheerleading skills, and the 
NSU group also won the Spirit 
Award for generating the 
most spirit throughout the 

Approved by the SBA senate 
last spring to bolster student 
enthusiasm in spectator 
sports and to reward those 
serving as cheerleaders with 
monetary assistance, the new 
(pay) plan for the 
cheerleaders is being funded 
by a surplus accumulated 
through High School 
Relations- sponsored summer 
cheerleading clinics and a 
matching grant from a North- 
western agency account.

A radio station at NSU? 

KNSU supporters contin 
to generate student suppo 


KNSU, a proposed NSU 
radio station, may become a 
possibility if the efforts of a 
group of students, headed by 
Michael Price, pays off. The 
station would be student- 
owned and operated. All that 
is needed is a favorable 
response and sufficient 
support from the SBA Student 
Services Committee. 

Price, originator and 
coordinator of the proposed 
station, undertook the 
necessary steps to get the 
station started. He obtained 
signatures of male and female 
campus students who were 
interested in supporting a non- 
commercial FM radio station. 

A report was submitted to 
the SBA Student Services 
Committee. Inquiries were 
made by the committee into 
important financial and 
organizational matters by 

sending questionnaires to all 
colleges and universities 
across the nation with radio 
stations which were similar in 
nature to the one proposed by 

If the SBA Student Services 
Committee approves the 
proposal and the SBA grants 
the money to the organizers, 
then Price will apply for an 
FCC license. It should take 
about 45 days to three months 
to obtain the license, which 
will be valid for three years. 

If the station gets a con- 
struction permit from the FCC 
then work will start on the 
facility. The earliest projected 
date for actual broadcasting 
to start is February, 1974. 

The station will probably 
operate from 2 pjn. to 12 a.m., 
according to the student 
organizers, although no 
definite time has been set.

tf">i for the upcoming 1973-74 year 

Two organizations on 
ipus designed to represent 
students are the Student 
,dy Association and the 
udent Union Governing 
ard. Each undergraduate 
jjipuld understand and con- 
himself with the 
jprkings of these 
Lanizations because they 
set up to speak for the 
; ire student body and act in 
ieir interest. 

Ail students are 
Automatically members of the 
jpjA. Hie Executive Com- 
ilttee, elected by the 
Students, is composed of a 
?arance at (resident, vice-president, 
in Demon 
labin, and 
Jones, and 
lorris, and 

treasurer, secretary, AMS 
president, and AWS president. 
Currently these positions are 
held by Jack Damico, Rodney 
Harrington, Floyd Copell, 
Linda Fulgham, Tommy 
Damico, and Mary Lynn 
Williamson, respectively. 
Legislative powers are 
invested in nine class 
senators, two from each class 
and one graduate, and 11 
senators-at -large . Each class 
elects their two class senators 
in the fall. On Sept. 19 of this 
semester class senators will 
be chosen to serve for the 
upcoming school year. The 

senators-at-large are elected 
in a campus-wide election held 
in the spring. 

The senators vote from their 
numbers for a chairman to 
preside over the meetings and 
also a clerk. Carol Susan 
Henderson is the Senate 
chairman with Nina Martin 
serving as clerk. 


The SBA serves as a link 
between the student and the 
administration. It has the 
responsibility to legislate, 
enact, and implement those 
measures decided to be in the 
student interest. Dr. Richard

MORE AND MORE OFFICERS — Student Union executive officers 
include, from left, Joe David, practicum student; Eddie Hebert, 
president, Robert Wilson, Student Union director, Rhonda Guilliams, 
secretary, and Doug Nichols, vice president for entertainment. 

SBA OFFICERS — SBA executive officers pose on the steps of the 
Student Union in a break from their governmental routine. They are, 
front row, (1 to r), Linda Fulgham, secretary; Nina Martin, clerk; 
Mary Lynn Williamson, AWS President; and back row, (1 to r), 
Tommy Damico, AMS President; Jack Damico, SBA President; and 
Rodney Harrington, vice president. Missing are Floyd Copell 
treasurer, and Carol Susan Henderson, chairman of the senate. 

Regular meetings are held 
each Monday at 6 p jn. in the 
Student Union and are open to 
all interested parties. 

Serving as the SBA right- 
hand man is the Student Union 
Governing Board. The 
Governing Board began as an 
outgrowth of the SBA and was 
designated to handle the SBA 
duty of entertainment. Since 
its inception the Board has 
encompassed a much wider 
range of activities and is now 
responible for all Student 
Union facilities . 

The Board is in charge of 
setting up big name en- 
tertainment on campus and 

The Carpenters, and The Nitty 
Gritty Dirt Band. Free movies 
are shown periodically in the 
Arts and Sciences Auditorium. 
The Board also sponsors the 
Lady of the Bracelet beauty 
pageant each spring, the 
Winter Ball during the 
Christmas season, and the 
Mardi Gras Ball. Dances are 
scheduled during football 
season after each home game. 

A favorite with the students 
is the Unfair held each spring. 
Possibly the most ambitious 
endeavor of the Board is the 
proposed recreational com- 
plex with construction 

maps out the activities of the 
Student Union. Eddie Hebert 
is the Board's president with 
Doug Nichols as vice- 
president of entertainment 
and Brenda Fitzgerald as 
vice-president of programs. 
Ronda Guilliams is secretary 
and Rocky Smith, treasurer. 
Robert Wilson is the Union 
Director. The Council is 
elected in a closed election 
each year by the outgoing 
Council. The Board meets 
each Tuesday at 7 p. m. in the 
Student Union. Any student 
may sign up to work on the 
many committees organized 
by the Council.

Payne leads NSUband 
in first performance 

Dr. J 

Dr. Jerry Payne, new 
director of the Northwestern 
bands, has initiated a new 
approach for the Demon 
,0 ..I, mman%; Marching Band. 

The band, which presented 
its first performance at the 
-^P" NSU football game last 

- / Saturday, plays a variety of 

w music. The style of marching 
used last year will not be 
altered, Payne said, but a new 
erry rayne show approach which hasn't 

been used before will be 
initiated. Popular jazz 
arrangements will be included 
in the music. 

Payne formerly served as 
band director for Alexandria 
Senior High during which 
time the high school band 
traveled to the First In- 
ternational Band Festival in 
Austria. Payne's group 
received superior ratings in 

all areas of the international 
competion . 

A native of Alexandria, he 
graduated from Nor- 
thwestern. He was also band 
director at two Natchitoches 
junior high schools and 
another junior high in 

Other than the marching 
band, Payne will also direct 
the Northwestern stage band.

COMPUTER TROUBLE — One of the most 
obvious pains of fall registration is the endless 
waiting for class and schedule cards, the long 
lines of entering students, and generally, the 
overall hassle of locating what you want, when 
you want it. Sometimes the most difficult 
computer to operate in this situation is of 
course, the human one.

Croce packs a wallop 
of prestige and talent 

Ramsey Muniz 

Jim Croce (pronounce cro-shay) will 
open the fall entertainment series 
Thursday, arriving at Northwestern 
with the audience-packing power of 
three recent hits to his credit. 

Known for such songs as "You Don't 
Mess Around with Jim," "Bad, Bad 
Leroy Brown," and "Operator," Croce 
will appear at 8 p.m. at Prather 
Coliseum with students admitted on L 
D.'s and other tickets selling for $3. 

Croce's singing vein encompasses 
folk-rock songs and a vide variety of 
lifestyles gives him a unique way of 
delivery. The 29-year-old singer has 

worked as a telephone lineman, a long- 
distance truck driver, a construction 
worker and a teacher of emotionally 
disturbed children as well as an en- 

The performance at NSU cost $4,250, 
according to Doug Nichols, vice 
president of entertainment for the 
Union Board. 

Croce's singing has taken him 

recently to such places as Lebanon, 
Turkey, Yugoslavia and Nigeria. The 
experiences he found in these travels 
are woven into many of his songs. 
Critics have said his songs are a pot- 
pourri of his life. 

Also scheduled on the entertainment 
series for this semester are Jose 
Feliciano for Dec. 1 and as a possible 
performance for homecoming, Lobo.

Nichols had no comment after the 
postponement of the decision. 




Three salaried yearbook positions 
are open to freshmen, according to 
Potpourri editor, Deborah Kavanaugh. 

Apprentice positions will pay a 
nominal salary and give the member 
priority over other applicants for a full 
staff position for the next year. 

The qualifications for the apprentice 
program applicants are: (1 ) must be a 
freshman-first or second semester (2 ) 
must have had some previous yearbook 
experience and (3 ) must have at least 
a 2.0 high school or college grade point 

Any freshman interested should 
prepare a written letter of application 
to the Editor stating his qualifications 
and experience. This letter should be 
placed in the Potpourri box in room 300 
Warren Easton before noon, Sept. 21. 

Bidding for the Northwestern ven- 
ding machine service contract, which 
was set to end at 5 pin. Tuesday, Sept. 
11, has been temporarily suspended, 
according to purchasing agent Sylvan 
Sibley. The present contract, which is 
held by the Allen & Allen Vending 
Machine "Service of Winnfield, 
(reportedly) expired in July and ad- 
vertising in local and state newspapers 
for the new campus supplier began 

But confusion has apparently 
developed in the entire bidding 
situation. When asked why the vending 
machine bidding was halted, Sibley 
responded, "I really don't know why 
this was done. I received a call from 
the Division of Administration in 
Baton Rouge the night before the 
bidding deadline and was instructed to 
return the envelope bids unopened." He 
added he had two bids at the time of the 

A check with the Division of Ad- 
ministration office revealed part of the 
problem. According to Paul Hayes, who 

handles the state contract bidding 
arrangements, the Northwestern 

vending service bidding was scratched 
because he felt that it had not been 
properly advertised and because 
"there is a problem with the present 
contract holder claiming that he still 
has three years before the expiration 

Sibley contends that the contract 
expired during the summer semester, 
and that the renewal time has arrived. 
He added that there will have to be a 
new deadline set and that any add- 
itional bids will have to be accepted. 

Speculation that SAGA foods, the 
Northwestern Iberville cafeteria 
supplier, would be in the bidding race 
apparently was unfounded when it was 
learned from John Radcliffe, manager 
of the cafeteria.thatSAGA did not send 
in a bid. Radcliffe said, "If the ad- 
ministration and students don't feel we 
should bid, we won't." 

"The reason I would think that they 
would not want our bids is that they 
want us to concentrate on Iberville and 
not be spread thin," he said. "Another 
reason is that they feel that more than 
one person or company should be in- 
volved in university business." 

JIM CROCE- The folk-rock singer will perform Thursday at 8 
p.m. in Prather Coliseum at the first of the semester 
entertainment series.

A recent motion to panel and carpet 
several offices in the Student Body 
Senate area is being staunchly 
defended by several members of the 
NSU Sentate. 

The motion was presented at the last 
Senate meeting and was tabled until the 
next meeting when a committee would 
present its findings concerning cost and 
other related problems. 

Student Body Association president 
Jack Damico said he agrees that there 
is some renovation needed. 

"In the past the student government 
has been sniffed off as a joke. Part of 
this could be attributed to the obvious 
natty appearances of these offices. 

"We feel there is a need to work on all 
aspects of the student government, and 
the atmosphere presented in the offices 
could certainly help," Damico said. 

"We will be hosting the Louisiana 
Student Association convention this 
November and will be visited by 
student government representatives 

from all over the state, not to mention 
state and national politicians. We 
certainly can't present a second rate 
image to these people," Damico said. 

He also pointed out that at other 
institutions within the state there is a 
regular yearly amount of money 
appropriated from students funds to 
keep up office and meeting room 

The offices to be renovated are the 
Senate meeting room that is already 
carpeted, its adjoining office and the 
executive office. 

THURSDAY, SEPT. 20 % AT 4 P.M. to 

Marina readied for spring 

LAKE FRONT VIEW - The new Sibley Lake marina is complete except for boat racks and a 
^mp. The building should be in use by this spring when special classes will be offered. 

With little work remaining on the 
Sibley Lake marina, special water 
skiing, sailing and canoeing classes 
should be available in the spring 
semester . 

"No classes were offered this fall 
since they still have to build boat 
racks and a ramp," said Dr. Robert 
Most, head of the Dept. of Health, 
Physical Education and Recreation. 

Teachers for the courses will be Dr 
Allen Bonnette, Dr. Joyce Hillard 
and Ernest Howell. They have 
attended Red Cross Small Craft 
School and National Aquatic School. 
Classes will probably meet one 
evening a week with each session 
lasting three hours. Regular canoeing 
classes will still be taught at 
Chaplin's Lake. 

Boats to be used in the classes 
were purchased from the 
Natchitoches Parish Supplementary 
Center and have been stored for 
the last two years. There are 10 

sailboats --one four-man, one two- 
man and the rest single-man crafts. 
There is also one complete skiing rig. 

The college carpentry shop will 
complete the work on the marina. 
"They will begin to drive piles for the 
pier next month when the level of the 
lake is dropped," Alost said. 

The actual construction of the 

building was done by the National 
Guard this summer. The land is 
leased from the City of Natchitoches. 
The marina is surrounded by a 40- 
acre tract of land which the college 
will use as a natural outdoor site for 
picnicking and camping. 

Included in the marina building is 
an upstairs office for Sibley Lake 
Security Officer Charles Vienne. 

IN STORAGE- The boats to be used for the water skiing an 
sailing classes to be offered have been in storage for the past two 
years. The boats will be put to use this spring.

One More Idea 

By Ronald Sanchez 

And the Envelope, Please 

Originally this editorial was to be devoted to 
the announcement that the bidding for the 
campus vending service had been officially 
closed and that an announcement would be 
forthcoming from NSU purchasing agent 
Sylvan Sibley on the new contract. Deadline for 
the bids had been set for Sept. 11, with a 
committee ready to look into the matter of 

But according to Sibley, a call from the 
Division of Administration in Baton Rouge the 
night prior to the bidding date ordered that the 
bidding be cancelled and that the proposals be 
returned to their respective clients. No 
explanation was given for this decision, but 
Sibley claimed that bidding would have to be 
re-opened and re-advertised. 

Sibley also admitted that, at the time of the 
cancellation call, two bids for the service were 
in his possession. The envelopes unopened, were 
returned to the unnamed vending service 

It should be interesting to learn which 
company eventually bags the vending contract, 
and even more interesting to discover the 
reasons behind the delays in settling a contract 
that Sibley claimed "expired" more than two 
months ago. 

Requirement: Hitchhiking 101 

Clinical nursing students assigned to the 
Warrington Place-Shreveport campus were 
informed by letter before the beginning of this 
semester that the practice of allowing 
university vehicles to serve as 

transportation to and from the area hospitals 
and clinics would be discontinued. And so, those 
student nurses must now utilize the public 
transit system, or if that is not available or 
feasible, they must fend for themselves in 
managing their required duties. 

According to nursing instructor Barbara 
Moffett (who was quoting Dr. Peggy Ledbetter, 
dean of Nursing), there were several reasons 
behind this move. Most notably, the enrollment 
on the Shreveport campus had jumped from 
last year's 150 figure to more than 220, creating 
a number too large to realistically maintain the 
system. Secondly, and oddly enough, the 
number of health agencies that the nursing 
students were required to service was 
expanded to more than 20 clinical facilities, 
spread throughout the Shreveport area. This 
wide geographical region, the Nursing 
Department felt, would not lend itself to the 
university car shuttle-service. 

It was estimated there were around six 
university vehicles available on the Shreveport 
campus. While the expanding enrollment 
certainly does make the six-car arrangement 
inoperative, it also presents many of the nurses 
with the quandry : How am I going to get to the 
hospital on time? (if at all.) Increasing the 
scope of the hospital practice certainly does 
involve problems in the past arrangement, but 
it also makes the transportation problem for 
the student . without an automobile more 
critical than ever. 

Complaints have already managed to filter in 
from the sometimes isolated Shreveport 
campus on this new arrangement. 

Either some solution should be fast in 
coming, or the Curriculum Review Council 
might institute a new requirement in the 
nursing program - Hitchhiking 101. 

The Name of the Game 

First floor East Varnado residents, at the 
initial-traditional dormitory meeting of the 
semester, were informed by the on-duty RA 
that permission to park in the neighboring 
Louisiana or Russell Library lots had been 
granted to the new coed dorm inhabitants. This 
authorization, he said, stemmed from Dr. 
Richard Galloway. (I later learned the RAwas 
correct in his announcement.) About a week 
later, those residents parked in the Louisiana 
lot (including this writer) were the disgruntal 
recipients of Campus Security traffic 

A check of the dormitory's roster showed 83 
students living in East Varnado and 75 inWegt 
Varnado. The designated parking lot for these 
students, lot No. 13, has by count 
approximately 26 available spaces. From these 
figures, it does not take a Rhodes scholar to 
realize, considering our ever-growing collegiate 
affluence, that there might be more than 26 
cars among Varnado's 158 residents. 

Sooner or later, most of these vehicles come 
"home to roost" and unfortunately, even with 
all of its 20th century innovations, GM has yet 
to produce the automobile which can be 
paok;i£fd and stored in the dormitory room 
Just what is a student supposed to do when 
ine capacity oi his assigned parking 101 nas 
been reached? 

Granted, the Northwestern traffic regulations 
specifically state: "Possession of a PARKING 

But sooner or later, the parking space does 
reach the saturation point and the student can 
only park in violation of the campus traffic 
regulations. Possibly Campus Security could 
consider this, instead of making this problem 
the around-the-office game to. see who can fill 
his ticket book the fastest. 


Those library hours! 

Are the long hours of student 
study in Watson Library. 

The Eugene P. Watson Memorial Library 
-that proud $3 million boast of expansion- 
minded Northwestern administration and 
alumni-last fallopenedits doors to service 
the academic-cultural requirements of the 
university .These same doors are bolted and 
secured by 10:30 p.m. each night. 

What causes this premature halt in the 
individual learning-study process? Does the 
need for information suddenly dissipate to 
non-existence during the twilight hours? Is 
the acquisition of knowledge after the late 
news TV-broadcast just a futile, and 
unfeasible, pursuit? 

The reason behind this apparently abrupt 
cessation of university functioning rests with 
Oie operational hours of the Watson 
"super-structure." Presently open from 8 a. 
m. - 10:30 p. m. on Monday through 
Thursday, from 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. on Friday 
and Saturday, and from 2:30p.m. -10:30p. 
m. on Sunday, the library has for the past 
year come under student criticism for its 
"late" opening and "early" closing 
regulations. Most recently, an SBA bill co- 
sponsored by student body president Jack 
Damico and vice president and student 
services chairman Rodney Harrington, 
calling for extension of the library hours, 

Harrington: "There are a 
great number of dissatisfied 
students and something 
needs to be done/' 

was unanimously passed by the senate and 
forwarded to Dr. Arnold R. Kilpatrick 
Northwestern president for consideration. 

The new proposal, recommending that 
the revised library hours be from 7:30 a. m, 
-12 p.m. on Monday-Thursday, from 7:30a, 
m.-5p.m. on Friday, from 9 a.m.- 5 p. m 
on Saturday, and from 2 p. m. - 12 p. m, on 
Sunday, has generated both favorable 
response and correspondingly opposite 

Harrington, in explaining his particular 
interest in the final acceptance of the 
What really necessitates a library hour extension measure, pointed to 
premature Closing Of the *»* number of students who have

as important as a struggle 
over the operational hours 

By Ronald Sanchez 
committee, a change In the library hours 
policy. He also added in contacting other 
schools of similar size and situation in the 
Louisiana State Board of Education 
system, that the Watson Library 
operational hours are indeed abbreviated. 
"The USL student body president, Steven 
Spring, was on the campus about two 

'I haven't been convinced by 
anything I've seen that this 
extension is needed/' 

weeks ago and he informed us that the 
Southwestern library is now open until 
midnight and the student government there 
is in the process of revising the closing 
time to 2 a. m." said Harrington. "There 
are a great number of dissatisfied students, 
and something needs to be done." 

"I've talked to Mr. MacKenzie (the 
Watson Llibrarian) a number of times and 
Tve asked his thoughts on the matter. But 
he seems to believe there is not enough 
traffic to warrant the hours-change and he 
added that he has received a cut in his 
budget which would make the proposal 
unfeasible," Harrington continued. 

To determine the actual student opinion 
on these library hour changes the SBA is 
planning a survey, to be conducted along 
with the Class Senator elections tomorrow 
in the Student Union. At that time, students 
will be requested to fill out a questionnaire 
explaining their particular library study 
habits, particularly in regard to the 
availability of the facility and the need for 
any extension. 

Donald MacKenzie the Watson librarian 
countered his opposition with two main 
arguments: lack of money and 
understaffing. He pointed to the financial 
considerations involved and two vacancies 
already existing on his staff. 

"I am reluctant to consider extending the 
library hours at this time," MacKenzie 
said, "because I feel it is most important 
that we fill the vacancies we have on the 
staff at the present. And I haven't been 
^d by anything I've seen that this 


extension is needed. I suspect that the 
crowd studying from 10p.m. - 12 p. m. wouj, 
be quite small, and I don't know any goo< 
reason why anyone couldn't come in at 
another hour." 

According to MacKenzie the libra! 
presently employs between 30 and 4$ 
student workers. But he added rha| 
rescheduling these positions and workinj 
on skeleton arrangements, where there 
would be a reduction of library employes 1 
any given time in the facility, would not ttj 
an equitable solution to the night-tin} 

Watson Library needs to be available lor 
student use, and extension of the limiting 
operational hours in present use seems to 
be die only alternative. Financial! 
considerations need to be taken 
account, but they should not be 
throttling force against the improvement 
the educational process at Northwestern. 

Who is to say if one student's researc 
does not "economically" warrant thi 
availability of a structure which ha 
already cost Louisiana citizens a sizeafl 
chunk of their tax dollars? 

It is apparent that a library is not

SBA tables motion for redecoration plain 
says facilities 'not conducive' to governme 

(Editor's note: At the Sept. 
10 meeting of the SBA, bill 
No. 018, calling for the ap- 
propriation of funds necessary 
for the paneling and carpeting 
of the main executive office, 
the Senate office, and the 
senate conference chamber, 
was tabled and scheduled to 
come up again at last night's 
meeting. From all indications, 
the SBA does have the 
available funds for this 
project and the general 
consensus of members was 
the bill would be approved. 

But the contention that the 
"Student Body Assn. facilities 
are not conducive to 
promoting the student interest 
necessary for proper and 
successful recruiting for 
Student Government" wears a 
little thin. 

Possibly a more concrete 
definition of student service 
needs to be developed before 
other such "self- 
improvement" measures are 
inacted. Or maybe guided 
tours through the new "Palace 
of Versailles" might be in 
order .-RJS

Dangerous weed threatens 
to damage water supply 

Dr. Dana R. Sanders, 
assistant professor of 
Biological Sciences here at 
Northwestern, has researched 
and identified an aquatic weed 
found is Sibley Lake, which he 
concludes to be of grave 
danger to not only the 
vegetation and fish life in the 
lake, but also to the water 
supply of the city of Nat- 

The weed was identified as 
Hydrilla or Florida Elodea, an 
aquatic native of the Middle 
East. The plant is now located 
in the Tennessee Gas arm of 
the lake. Dr. Sanders 
predicted that if the weed is 
not eliminated, it could 
overrun the entire lake within 

five years, and would con- 
sequently become harmful to 
the city's water supply. He 
stated that it has been in the 
lake approximately a year. 

The Hydrilla was found in 
Sibley Lake by two NSU 
students, Russ Theriot and 
James Manning, in late July, 
Theriot is a zoology major and 
Manning is now an employee 
of the Wildlife and Fisheries 
Commission. Both were 
studying under Dr. Sanders at 
the time they found the weed, 
and have assisted him in 
researching the plant. 
Persistent Plant 

Dr. Sanders said the plant is 
extremely difficult to 
eliminate. He stated that it 

grows in deep water and can 
survive in very dim light. 

The only other place in 
Louisiana in which the 
Hydrilla had been sited was 
Spanish Lake near Lafayette. 
The Wildlife and Fisheries 
Commission has started a 
state wide survey in search of 
the weeds in other water

NSU's hostess 

Tradition is alive and well 
at Northwestern, as will be 
attested to by anyone con- 
nected with the upcoming 
"Miss Lady of the Bracelet" 
pageant, slated for early 
December. An annual 
presentation of the Student 
Union Governing Board, the 
pageant focuses on the 
selection of the NSU woman 
who is judged best qualified 
to carry the title of "Nor- 
thwestern's Official Hostess" 
for a year. 

The "Lady of the Bracelet" 
pageant which originated in 
1958, is noted for its 
"professional-touch" color 
and pageantry that rivals 
that of any other Miss 
Louisiana preliminary. 
Coordinating this year's 
production is Martha 

Compton, a veteran in 
beauty pageant work, 
assisted by Brenda Fit- 
zgerald, a former Lady of the 

Bracelet runner-up and 
presently SUGB vice 
president for program. 

The current title holder is 
Lisa Ann ell e Thompson, a 
freshman secretarial ad- 
ministration major from 
Florien who was crowned 
last December by Elaine 

Rainey, 1972 Lady of the 

Commenting on the 
benefits of the pageant, Lisa 
said, "You gain a higher 
opinion of yourself as well as 
more self-confidence. You 
meet so many interesting 
people, but most of all you 
have a good time." 

Upon being selected as 
"Miss Lady of the Bracelet," 
Northwestern 's first lady 
serves the university in 
many capacities. Along with 
the responsibility of acting 
as the official hostess, she 
represents the student body 
at various events scheduled 
throughout the year. She is 
invited to attend all area 
pageants and festivals, 
called upon to greet 
dignitar ies visiting the 
campus, and featured in 
parades such as the annual 
Natchitoches Christmas 
festival, Holiday in Dixie and 
NSU's homecoming parade. 

"Miss Lady of the 
Bracelet" is asked to judge 
various area pageants . 

The top five beauties 
in the pageant are also 
featured in the university's 
yearbook, the Potpourri. 


pageant saw Elaine Rainey pass on the coveted 
bracelet to Lisa Thompson, who won the title 
after competition in talent, interview, and 
swimsuit. A presentation of the Student Union 
Governing Board, Northwestern's preliminary to

university's official hostess for the year.

There is only one thing 
wrong with young idealists. 

They haven't been around 
long enough to understand 
the Art of the Possible. 

They have plenty of 
righteous indignation, plenty 
of justified impatience at the 
stupid things that their elders 
have done, plenty of causes 
and zeal. 

It is at the trade-off where 
they fall down. 

Nearly every change in 
human affairs is a trade-off. 
There are benefits. There are 
costs. The automobile is a 
great convenience. Its exhaust 
is a cost. An anti-pollution 
exhaust system is another 
cost. It makes cars more 
expensive or less powerful, or 
both. We must judge how- 
much we want to trade off f or 
an undoubted benefit

"There oughta be a law!" A 
law is an effort to restrain 
destructive human conduct 
and force desirable human 
conduct. It curbs the freedom

the gasoline pinch in Natchitoches.

It is a known fact that 
current gasoline prices are a

college students, and 
justifiably so. The average

A check of local service 
stations showed gas prices for

anywhere from 40 cents to 44 
cents, depending on your 
particular brand of gasoline. 
Regular gasoline runs you a 
few cents less. 

The American Automobile 
Association says the average 
car gets 12 miles to the gallon. 
Using premium gas priced at 
40 cents per gallon, a trip to 
New Orleans and back costs 
about $13. 

Self service and

are feeling the tight gas 

An employe for one of the 
local self-service stations

better than it has been in the 
past but he was not getting as 
much gasoline as he had been. 

"Students are our biggest

A Gulf Oil dealer states that 
independents have received 
no cut back in fuel supplies. 

"What they say is wrong. 
I've heard of no rationing. It 
makes no sense at all." 

No matter whom you 
believe, there seems to be a

as well as everywhere else in

Movie Notes 

At the Don 

"Romeo and Juliet" is scheduled for a final 
showing tonight at the Don Theatre. "The Neptune 
Factor," a story of underwater adventure, begins 
a four-day run tommorrow. 

Packed with action reminiscent of "The 
Poseidon Adventure" and "Airport," "The 
Neptune Factor" stars Ben Gazzara, Yvette 
Mimieux, Walter Pidgeon and Ernest Borgnine. 
The movie centers around the search for a group 
of aquanauts who dissappear while doing 
scientific study in an ocean laboratory in the 
Atlantic. Science fiction and realism are smoothly 
combined in this production by Sanford Howard, 
who also produced "A Man Called Horse" and "A 
Man in the Wilderness." 

At the Chief 

Featured at the Chief Drive-In tonight is an Pi- 
rated double feature, "Stacey" and "Carry on 
Camping." Wednesday and Thursday nights' 
double bills include "Angels Die Hard" and "The 
Big Bust-Out." Showing at the Chief Friday and 
Saturday are "The Student Teachers" (definitely 
not a production of the NSU Education Dept. ) and 
"Women in Cages."

It was Cage's 64-yard TD 
scamper that signaled their 
arrival, and Walker's three 
field goals that assured the 
show's success, as the pair led 
the Northwestern State 
University Demons to their 
second straight victory, a 
convincing 23-7 win over the 
visiting Bulldogs. 

The win, a designated 
conference victory for the 
Demons, upped the NSU 
squad's record to 2-0 overall 
and 1-0 in the Gulf South 

Cage, a junior tailback from 

Jonesboro, carried the 
vaunted Demon rushing at- 
tack with his second straight 
100-yard exhibition, this one 
for 105 yards. It was also his 
64-yard jaunt midway through 
the second period that finally 
got the listless offense on the 
right track. Until his heroics, 
the Demons had only 
managed 24 yards in total 
offense and had tallied only 
one first down. 

Walker, senior kicker from 
Bossier City, continued his 
rewriting of the NSU Record 
Book as he tied two of his own 
records. His three fielders

Cage's jaunt erased an early 
7-0 deficit for Northwestern, 
as the visitors showed sur- 
prising power on thier first 
three possessions. After 
holding the Demons without a 
first down on their first 
possession, the Bulldogs 
marched relentlessly to the 
23 before being forced back. 

After stopping the locals 
again, the Okies marched all 
the way to the Demon 10, but a 
field goal attempt went awry. 
On the next series, however, 
quarterback Wilton Cox 
fumbled, and the Bulldogs 
took advantage of this one. 
Tailback Ronnie Williams 
burst over from three yard* 
out to give the visitors their 
Erst and only lead. 

After an exchange of punts, 
Cox rolled right on first down 
and pitched to Cage on the 
option. Mario cut between two 
beautiful blocks by Dennis 
Smith and Glen Wofford and 
was not touched after he 
turned the corner. Walker was 
true with the conversion, and 
tne Demons appeared to have 
new life. 

The third quarter was 
^minated by the talented toe 
of Walker. After a Bulldog 
punt, NSU went on its best 
drive of the night. Mike 
Harter lugged three times, 
Cage picked up a first down, 
"ox hit fleet end Reggie 
Thompson for 27 yards, and 
just like that NSU was on the 
invader's 30. Cage rambled 
for 13 and Cox hit Thompson 
again, but the drive stalled on 
the three, and Walker came on 
to boot a 20-yarder. 

Following another forced 
Okie punt and a fancy return 
by Thompson, the Demons 
drove to the Dog 24, with a 16- 
yard strike from Butch 
Ballard to Thompson the 
highlight. Walker came on to 
power through a 41-yarder, 
the second longest of his 

Safety Skipper Morgan 
picked off an errant SW aerial 
on the first play of the final 
period to set up Walker's final 
three-pointer. This one came 
from 29 stripes out. 

The final Demon tally 
came after a 66-yard march 
with reserve backs Sidney 
Thornton and Carol Broussard 
doing the damage. As Thorn- 
ton pleased the 8,000 fans with 
some hard running, Ballard 
hit Mark Kalbacher and Stan 
Brouillette with first down 
passes. Broussard finally hit 
paydirt from one yard out. 

NOT CAGED UP-Mario Cage eyes a hole in the 
Southwest Oklahoma defense during the Demons' 
23-7 victory Saturday night. Cage led the NSU 

attack with 105 yards rushing, including a 64-yard 

touchdown jaunt.

Walker and tailback Mario 
Cage, both of whom played big 
roles in Northwestern State 
University's first two vic- 
tories, are the individual 
statistical leaders for the 
Demons after two games. 

Walker, an Ail-American 
candidate who is being wat- 
ched carefully by pro scouts, 
has taken over the scoring 
leadership for Northwestern 
after booting three field goals 
and kicking two extra points in 
NSU's 23-7 victory over 
Southwestern Oklahoma 
Staurday night. 

The three field goals in one 
game tied his own school and 
Gulf South Conference record 
set last year twice. He also 
tied another school record for 
most points (11) in one game 
by a kicker. 

On Pat Streak 
A senior out of Bossier City, 
Walker has now kicked 13 
consecutive extra points and 
five straight field goals dating 
back to last year when he led 
NSU in scoring with 53 points. 
He has 17 points in two games 
this season. 

Walker also leads the 
Demons in the punting 
department, averaging 39.6 
yards per punt. One of his 
punts against Southwestern 
Oklahoma, a 45-yarder, was 
killed at the one yard line. 
Cage Leads Rankings 
Cage leads the Demons in 
total offense, rushing and 
kickoff returns. His 105-yard 
effort against the Oklahomans 
gives him 220 yards for th e 

season and an oust an ding 6.7 
yard rushing average. He has 
one kickoff return for 32 yards 
and the longest run from 
scrimmage (64 yeards). 

In the passing department, 
senior Wilton Cox leads with 
88 yards (7 of 15 passes). 
However, freshman Butch 
Ballard has completed four of 
six passes for 80 yards. Both 
have thrown one touchdown 

Junior split end Reggie 
Thompson is NSU's top 

receiver with five receptions 
for 75 yards. Thompson also 
leads the Demons in punt 
returns with five runbacks for 
53 yards-a 10.6 average. 

Senior safety Skipper 
Morgan, a converted split end, 
is the top pass thief with two 
interceptions for 24 yards. 
NSU has picked off five passes 
as a team. 

Defense Stingy 

Northwestern continues to 
have one of the top scoring 

defenses allowing only 3.5 
points a game while its offense 
averages 23.5 per game. 

In yardage NSU is 
averaging 224.5 yards rushing 
per game and 84.0 passing 
compared to 98.0 rushing and 
125.5 for its opponents. 

Northwestern puts its 2-0 
record on the line Saturday 
night in Dallas, Tex. against 
Bishop College's Tigers. With 
the designated GSC win over 
Southwestern Oklahoma, NSU 
has a 1-0 league mark.

"John Dilworth is poten- 
tially the best defensive back 
we've ever had at Nor- 

Coach Gene Knecht, not 
usually given to superlatives, 
used these words to describe 
the Demon cornerback after 
his outstanding game against 
East Texas State two weeks 

Dilworth intercepted a pass 
and recovered a fumble to set 
up two scores in the 24-0 rout 
over the defending NAIA 
national champions. For his 
efforts, he was tabbed as the 
"Defensive Player of the 
Week" in the Gulf South 

That performance came 
against an ETSU passing 
attack that is considered one 
of the best in college division 
football. The lions entered the 
game sporting quarterback 
Will Cureton and split end 
Dudley Slice, both of whom 
got some sort of Ail-American 
recognition last year. 

But Dilworth, a 9.7 sprinter 
in the 100, didn't have much 
trouble covering Slice or 
wingback Richard Akers, 
ETSU's supreme wide 

He also made five tackles, 
even though ETSU tried to 
avoid going to his side of the 
field consistently. '"He shut 
off their outside game on his 
side and did a great job 
covering his man on pass 
defense," Knecht commented. 

Knecht stresses perfection 
to his defensive backs, and 
Dilworth has apparently 
adopted his coach's 

DEFENSIVE STANDOUT - Junior cornerback 
John Dilworth was named the "Defensive Player 
of the Week" in the Gulf South Conference last 
week for his performance against East Texas 

philosophy. "I guess I had a 
good game, but I could have 
had a couple of more in- 
terceptions," the ace cor- 
nerback remarked. 

Dilworth 's fumble recovery 
set up a 42-yard field goal by 
Randy Walker. His fourth 
quarter interception stymied 
a potential scoring drive. 

The Lions were held 
scoreless by the Demons and 
it was the first time in 31 
games that a team had turned 
that trick against ETSU's 
explosive offense. 

"Our defense was up for the 
game," Dilworth explained. 
"We lack experience in a 
couple of positions, but I think 
that makes all of us just try 

harder. It may take a couple 
of games for our younger 
players to get it together." 

Northwestern's defense, 
which lost six starters from 
last year's team, shut out one 
opponent (Delta State 12-0) in 
1972 and yielded only 8.6 points 
a game to lead the state- iflthat 

"Our goal is to be better 
than last year," Dilworth said 
of the defense. 

That's also the personal goal 
of Dilworth. And if he con- 
tinues his superb play, he'll be 
a strong candidate for All- 
America recognition. ..and 
more importantly, the 
Demons will continue to win.

Morgan stars in debut 
at defensive back post 

STAR IN NEW POSITION - Since his switch from 

offensive end to defensive back, Skipper Morgan 
has "come through with flying colors." He picked 
off a pass against East Texas State to set up a 
Demon score. 

When Northwestern State 
University defensive 
coodinator Gene Knecht was 
told last spring that he could 
choose any player from the 
Demon offense except a 
quarterback, he didn't make a 

Northwestern Head Foot- 
ball Coach George Doherty 
knew that Knecht needed 
another defensive back to 
bolster the Demon secondary. 
That's why he let Knecht "rob 
a player" from NSU offensive 
coaches Johnnie Emmons, 
John Ropp and Herbie Smith. 

Skipper Morgan, a 5-foot-ll, 
187-pound senior split end, was 
Knecht 's choice. 

"The offense had some 
players who could run faster, 
jump higher and change 
directions better," Knecht 
said, "but Skipper has what it 
takes. He's a great young man 
who has heart, desire, self 

ie sister sport, college basketball, has excellent playoff

E ge plateau. There Southern Cal's crosstown rival UCLA

' orin l on the court and defeat all comers before they were 
°^ as aimed as national champs. 

Bowl Games a Problem 


un iaybe the system of bowl games has ruled out the 
natoi ability of a playoff system. But maybe not. All of the 

onlj or college teams complete their schedules before Dec. 1 
u-om t gives three weeks before any of the major bowl games 

can eems that three weeks is plenty time for some (any ? ) sort

ig through an entire season. 

aloney. Don't try to tell me that a coach will turn down a 
to a national championship tournament. Most would 
p at the chance, and even more would give anything short 
ieir right arm for even one chance at a playoff berth, 
ntil a system is devised, the mythical national 
mpionship will s*ay just that -mythical. 

The Mad Predictor 

Thanks to a couple of upsets by local teams in the state, the 
ad Predictor fearlessly rolled up a less-than-expected 19 
ght and 5 wrong tally for a percentage of only .792. Between 
sen's unseen loss and Northeast's unexpected tie with 
J ^Mississippi State, only a great deal of luck avoided an even 
-i- ^Jwer mark 

On the brighter side, though, NSU followed true to form

control, a good attitude and 
most important-that special 
athletic ability." 

Morgan, a product of 
Shreveport-Woodlawn, was an 
outstanding split end for three 
years at Northwestern. 

How did Morgan do as a 
starting safety for NSU 
against one of the top passing 
teams (East Texas State) in 
college division football? "He 
(Morgan) came through with 
flying colors," Knecht said. 
"Skipper made a few 
mistakes in the game, but he 
made them in front of 
him. ..not behind. I was 
pleased with his per- 

A popular player with the 
fans and his teammates, 
Morgan graded 77 percent in 
the ETSU game, which isn't 
bad for his first start at a new 
position He also came up with 
a spectacular interception. 

"He just made a great 

play," Knecht said of Morgan's 
diving catch. "Only an alert 
football player could have 
made the play. It's that kind of 
play that wins football 

Morgan caught five passes 
for 71 yards last year as a 
receiver on offense. That's not 
too good for a "normal" 
college split end, but it was 
fine considering NSU's run- 
oriented offense a year ago. 

"I've been getting a lot of 
kidding from a lot of guys," 
Morgan says. "They say I'll 
probably catch more passes 
this year on defense than I did 
on offense last year." 

Well, six pass interceptions 
wouldn't be out of Morgan's 
reach. "Sure, he's already got 
one interception," Knecht 
said, "and he's got 10 more 
games to get five in- 
terceptions. He can do it and 
he's got the confidence that he 

The Northwestern State 
Demons go after Win No. 3 
Saturday night, when they 
travel to Dallas to take on the 
Bishop College Tigers. 

NSU sports a 2-0 mark after 
taking the first two contests of 
this season, over East Texas 
State and Southwest 
Oklahoma. However, this will 
be the first test for the 
Demons on the road. 

With the influx of some 
unusually fine talent to bolster 
the returning veterans from 
the 1972 Tiger grid team, 
prospects for a much- 
improved season are in the c- 
rystal ball of Coach Dwight 
Fisher. At the beginning of fall 
drills August 14, Fisher 
commented,^' We have been at 
it for only t o days now and 
we are already getting the 
kinks out; but with several 
returning veterans and 
promising freshmen in many 
positions, it looks like this will 
be one of our greatest seasons 

"Defensively, we are 
strong," added Fisher, "but 
the offense still needs some 

vying for the job. Jerrell 
Sheppard appears to have the 
inside track with a year's 
experience under his belt. 
Erinis Thomas, a junior who 
saw little action last season, 
and Willie Beal, a 5' 6" (yes, 
that's right, 5'6") scatback, 
are the other contenders. 

Fisher also looks for a 
combination of speed at the 
wide receiver slot and a 
mammoth line on both sides to 
help carry his team back from 
last year's disastrous 2-8 

Other top offensive retur- 
nees include flanker Joe 
Pierce and halfback Richard 

Versatile Bobby Brooks, 
who was second on the team 

last year in tackles with 65, 
spearheads the Tigers' 
defense. Brooks pulled down 
seven pass interceptions from 
his defensive back post. 
Linebacker James Reed, who 
had 66 stops a year ago, is 
another key figure in the Tiger 
defensive plans. 

Other stars on the Bishop 
defense are safety Willie 
Matthews, cornerback J. B. 
Wallace, and defensive 
linemen Jackie Robinson and 
Alphonso Jagers. 

The offensive line returns 
intact with Waymon West, 
Rhiny Williams, Sylvester 
Robinson, and center Adrian 
Bradford all returning.

his graduate work at the 
University of Missouri in 
Kansas City. For the 
past three years he has been 
with the faculty of St. Cloud 
College in Minnesota where 
he taught voice, opera, opera 
workshop and women's

five were killed after taking off from 

Natchitoches Municipal Airport following the 
NSU concert. 

Jim Croce puffed on a little cigar and 
strummed his guitar as he talked of his 
recent T.V. appearances, his favorite 
performers and the tiredness he was 
feeling after so many one night concert 
stops. His final interview took place in 
a football dressing room in Prather 

"Later tonight we're flying to 
Sherman, Texas," he replied when 
asked about his next engagement. 

Three hours later, the rock star and 
his troupe of five lay dead among the 
tangled wreckage of their twin engine 
Beech craft D-18 plane. 

Federal Aviation Administration 
officials are still looking for a clue to 
the cause of the crash which occurred 
only about 200 yards from the south 
runway of the Natchitoches Municipal 

Killed were Croce, 30; comedian 
George Stevens, 36; agent Dominick 
Cortese, 28; accompanist Maurice T. 
Muehleisen, 24; pilot Robert Newton 
Elliot, 57; and Dennis Rast, 30. 

Approximately 2,000 Northwestern 
students attended Thursday's per- 

By Melanie Babin 

formance of one of the nation's most 
popular singers and songwriters, 
unaware that they were witnessing his 
final public appearance. Croce's 
captivating, resonant voice filled the 
Coliseum as he performed both well- 
known successes and new com- 
positions. Between numbers he joked 
about some of the personal experiences 
behind his songs. 

A witness to the crash reported that 
the plane never seemed to gain any 
altitude. It scraped the top of a tree, 
catching the wing and crashed to the 
ground near the new Hwy. 1 bypass 
bursting apart upon impact. 

"Well just try to piece it all back 
together. We'll get the flight plan and 
try to see what happened," said FAA 

"I've flown about 700,000 or 
800,000 miles this past year. I'm 
starting to feel it now, too. You 
know, jet lag."

Approached earlier about the bill 
already approved by the SBA, Dr. 
Kilpatrick had asked for some showing 
of student support for the new plan. 
Original backers of the bill, SBA Pres. 
^ I * s—fc e ^ Damico and Vice President 
|\|/\OP°dney Harrington produced the 
^ e vidence with a questionnaire of about 

X 200 students and a count of students at 

toe library at its closing time. 

"We need to look at it and then 
*ange it. It seems like a good idea," 
Dr. Kilpatrick, "I will get with Dr. 
•Frank) Martin and (Librarian 
Donald) MacKenzie. We can get at it in 
B °out a week or 10 days." 

The proposal calls for the library to 
°P«n at 7:30 a jn. and run till midnight 
Monday through Friday instead of the 
°urrent 8 a.m. --10: 30 p.m hours. 
Saturdays would have an hour later 
^art than the present 8a.m. opening 


time but would close as usual at 5 p. m. 
Sundays the library would be open for 
use under the new plan from 2:30 p. m. 
till midnight. 

The questionnaire circulated at last 
weeks election showed 194 persons in 
favor of the change, with special 
support for the extended hours during 
the week and on Sunday. 

The sponsors of the bill and other 
student senators also conducted a count 
of the number of persons using the new 
$3 million facility at closing time. 

The highest number recorded was 112 
students on a Wednesday night and an 
overall average of 70 persons at the 
library at closing time. 

The main objections by Librarian 
MacKenzie were his assertions that 
traffic would not warrant the extra 
hours and a problem would arise with

"The Effect of Gamma Rays on the - 
Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds" by Paul 
Zendel will be the first major play of 
the season. It was a recent and suc- 
cessful Broadway show and has been 
made into a major motion picture by 
Paul Newman with Joanne Woodward 
in the lead role. 

This show will be NSU's entry in the 
Louisiana festival of the American 
College Theatre Festival in Baton 
Rouge on Oct. 24. The show will return 
to the NSU campus to begin per- 
formance Nov. 7 in the Little Theatre 
and run until Nov. 10 . Ray Schexnider 
will direct the show. 

A Moliere classic, "School for Wives" 
is the major production scheduled for 
Feb. 20-23. Dr. E. Robert Black will 
direct the French playwright's classic. 

A musical is scheduled to end the se- 
ason. The actual play has not been 
selected yet. "Godspell", "Oliver", and 
"Cabaret" are some of the plays under 
consideration. Students are invited to 
state their preference of plays. 

Winning clear majorities and thus 
elected were Paulette Hebert and 
Anna Lowe, junior class senators; 
Nina Martin, senior class senator; and 
Adrian Strother as the lone graduate 
representative. Martin and Strother 
were incumbent senators. 

For the freshmen, sophomore, and 
one position in the senior races clear 
majorities, according to Louisiana 
law, were not obtained, thus 
necessitating tomorrow's runoff. 

About 650 students voted in last 
week's election. Tomorrow's polling 
will be done from 8 a. m. to 7 p. m. in 
nthe Student Union with I. D.'s 
required to vote. 

Those in the runoff for freshman 
senator are Mary Armour, Mary 
Bobb, Jay Garcia and Joan 
Couvillion. Sophomores are Gayle 
Bellemin, Diane Mclnnis, Doug Norris 
and Martha Segura. Competing for the 
remaining senior position are Sarah 
Jane Cox and Ronald Perry.

Northwestern administration, Allen

Division of Administration, presently 
locked in a confused set of cir- 
cumstances surrounding the cancelled 
bidding procedure for the campus 
ven ding service, may meet the 
showdown in the legal arena, if 
suppositions by the major parties in- 
volved hold true. Dr. Arnold R. 
Kilpatrick, president of Northwestern, 
Sylvan Sibley, Northwestern pur- 
chasing agent, and Warren Allen, 
owner of the Allen & Allen, Inc. service 
of Winnfield, all indicated that the 
present controversy over the validity of

and the action by the university of 
sending the matter out on bids, might 
wind up in the courts.

Dr. Richard Lovell, director of the 
undergraduate rehabilitation program 
at NSU, said that no official written 
word of the pnaseout of the funds has 
been received. 

"I have received verbal confirmation 
from the regional offices that the 
money is being phased out during the 
1974 fiscal year," Lovell said. 

The loss of these funds will mean that 
young people interested in 
rehabilitation will have to compete with 
other college students for general 
student loans and grants. 

The phaseout is part of a general 
policy to curtail specialized manpower 
training programs in favor of broad 
programs of support for higher 
education, according to the Depart- 
ment of Health, Education and Welfare. 

President Nixon has agreed to sign a

old program. The bill is currently in the 
House which is expected to vote on the 
issue soon. 

The Senate, last week, gave their 
unanimous approval to the bill. 

to go on their contract," Sibley said. "I 
feel this issue might eventually be 
settled in court." 

"There's no doubt in my mind that 
Allen & Allen does have legal recourse 
in this matter," said Dr. Kilpatrick. 
"The whole matter may have to go to 
the courts." 

And said the vending machine 
company owner Allen, at the center of 
the whole quagmire of confusion, "I 
believe we have a valid contract with 
the university and I would use legal 
action to uphold this decision. I have 
principles and I'm not going to let some 
state politicians push me out." 

"Even though I thought this was a 
legal contract, and that I did have until 
1976 before my contract actually ex- 
pired, I agreed to bid competitively 
because that's what the university 
wanted," Allen added. He explained 
that the five-year option plan was in- 
serted in the contract when the 
university and Allen & Allen agreed it 
would be virtually impossible for the 
company to recover its initial in- 
vestment -$300,000 in machinery for the 
campus-in the first five-year expanse. 

But according to Dr. Kilpatrick, he 
decided to bring the matter up for bids, 
two years into the Allen & Allen option, 
because he felt that it was better for 
Northwestern and for Allen & Allen to 
put the contract up again on the open 
market. He admitted that his original 
understanding of the contractual five- 
>ear option clause was that it was a 
one-year renewable option.

races. I. D. 

According to the statements of Dr. 
Kilpatrick and vending service owner 
Allen, the contract bidding was then put 
into action on a mutual agreement 
basis. But Allen pointed the finger of 
blame for the awkward mix-up at a 
state senator, whom he claimed had 
involved himself in the matter in a 
political patronage move. 

"I was willing to re-bid on the ven- 
ding contract, although I felt I had a 
valid contract," Allen conceded. "But 
when I see that the politicians in Baton 
Rouge are using this as an attempt to 
'slice the pie' to their benefit, I can't 
close any avenues to receiving what I 
feel is mine."

According to Sen. Robbie Fowlkes, 
the university carpentry crews would 
provide the specifications and do the 
labor required for paneling the rooms. 
But the carpeting would have to be 
taken care of by an outside firm. Ford's 
Carpet Service of Natchitoches will 
write up the carpet specifications. 

For the university carpenters to do 
the work, it must be scheduled only for 
rainy days when their heavy backlog of 
outside campus work cannot be done, 
Fowlkes said. "The labor will be 
free," he said. 

Until the specifications are deter- 
mined, no estimate of cost for the 
project can be given.

One More Idea 

By Ronald Sanchez 

That First Big Step 

As reported in the last issue of the Current 
Sauce, the question of the library 
hours extension would be ultimately determined 
by the response shown in a student survey 
illustrating support of this measure. This 
survey, and a head-count of students using the 
library facility at the late hours of operation, 
were brought to Dr. Arnold R. Kilpatrick, who 
had already indicated that he would adhere to 
the senate recommendations if the group could 
indicate sufficient interest. 

From the results of this survey, and from a 
sizeable count of students in Watson at the 
appointed closing time, Dr. Kilpatrick has 
apparently decided in favor of this student 
proposal. The library extension hours should be 
soon in coming. 

Rodney Harrington, SBA Vice president and 
student services chairman, deserves much of the 
credit in enacting this particular bit of 
legislation. Jack Damico, SBA president, also 
comes in for his share of the plaudits. They both 
realized that the present situation was 
correctable, and they both realized that Dr. 
Kilpatrick was the most efficient means of 
implementing this plan. 

On my first editorial this semester I pointed * o 
the SBA's "New Directions." This successful 
library hours venture might be just that first 

From the Land of Current Sauce 

Last week I directed a gentle stab at the SBA 
for their planned redecoration bill and referred 
to their Student Union office as the new "Palace 
of Versailles." Of course, all this talk of royalty 
was directed in the spirit of fun. 

But from speaking to one organizational head 
on this campus, there seems to be some question 
as to whether I, myself, have set up my own 
kingdom on the third floor of Warren Easton. 
Although I find even the insinuation to be 
incredible, I feel that some explanation should be 

The point arose when I edited a particular 
piece of Current Sauce copy - that is, I cut and 
rewrote parts of a column - handed into our 
office by this organizational leader. He 
apparently did not appreciate my effort. 

According to Webster's New World Dictionary 
an editor is defined as "one who edits." This 
publication goes on further to define the verb 
"to edit" as "to prepare for publication, by 
selection, arrangement, and annotation," 
"revising and making ready for publication," 
and "deciding what is to be printed." 

In directing his particular complaints, this 
student raised the question of whether I did have 
this authorization - or whether I was merely 
assuming a role derived by my own 
contrivance. He further insisted that any changes 
I saw fit to make in his writing efforts should first 
be cleared through him - advice I have neither 
the time, nor the inclination , to follow. 

The fact is that some material printed in this 
newspaper needs a certain degree of editing. The 
word "censorship" does not really creep into the 
subject at all, for some orderly means of 
selection must be given to someone. Who better

NOTICE: Letters to the editor must be 
signed. For our own protection, any 
correspondence directed to the Current 
Sauce editor and intended for publication 
must bear the valid signature of the writer. 
The name of the letter writer can be 
withheld upon request, but we reserve the 
right to know the writer's identity. Also all 
letters to the editor, as well as all other 
printed material , are subject to editing by 
the Current Sauce editor. 

The minutes of the Sept. 17, 
1973 meeting of the Nor- 
thwestern SBA are as follows : 
The Senate of the Nor- 
thwestern State University 
Student Body Assn. met on 
Sept. 17, 1973, at 6 p.m. in the 
SBA Conference Room. 
Randy Broadnax talked to 
the senate about the fountain 

for the front of the 
University, and made several 
suggestions as to what the 
SBA could do to complete the 
project. Henderson called the 
meeting to order. An- 
derson and Hebert were late. 
Woods, Lambard, and 
Strother were absent. The 
minutes were approved as 

Under committee reports, 
Damico, J. announced some 
committee appointments for 
Senate approval. Harrington 
reported on the Student 
Services meeting. There will 
be a poll taken during the 
Class Senator Elections for 
the extension of hours of the 
library. He also reported on 
his efforts to change the NSC 
signs in town to NSU. Doolan 
reported on the Student 
Rights meeting. Subjects of 
interest were the browsing 
areas in the Union and the TV 

viewing area downstairs. 

Fulgham announced that 
ihere was now a sponsor for 
the pompon line. The new 
sponsor, Mrs. 

Roquemore, will have a 
meeting on Monday, Sept. 24, 
at 5 p. m. 

Under old business, bill No. 
018 was not brought from the 
table concerning the paneling 
and carpeting of the Senate 
Office, Senate Conference 
Chamber, and the Executive 
Office, so it has died. 

Bill No. 021, sponsored by 
Henderson concerning ap- 
propriation of $1500 for the 
"purpose of purchasing 
books, current magazines, 
and audio-visual supplies" 
for the clinical campus was 
put into motion by Fowlkes, 
seconded by Anderson. A 
friendly amendment by 
Fowlkes, seconded by Coutee 
passed, 11 for, 1 abstention to 
add that an itemized list of 
expenditures by submitted to 
the Student Senate from the 
librarian at Clinical. 

Also under new business, 
bill No. 022, sponsored by 
Damico, J. to allocate the 
funds necessary for at- 
tendance at the LSA meeting 
at LSU-NO on Sept. 21, 22 

and 23, was moved to accept 
as an emergency measure by 
Torbett, seconded by Todd. 
Motion passed, 10 for, 1 op- 
posed, 1 abstention. Torbett 
moved for final passage, 
seconded by Doolan. Motion 
passed, 9 for, 3 abstentions. 
Motion by McPherson, 
seconded by Torbett to send 3 
senators as representatives to 
the LSA meeting. Doolan, 
amended, seconded by Coutee 
to send the 3 executive of-

Nixon, Agnew in political fight-for-life 

A deluge called Watergate 

^— * Hu rh...,iTk. urn ^ — 7 

"When will it aD end?" is a 
question Americans are asking 
themselves today. The setting for 
the bugging and burglary was the 
Watergate Hotel, the time was 
nearly a year and a half ago, and 
the results have yet remained 
unsettled. Of all the testimonies, 
acquisitions and Senate hearings, 
President Nixon still remains 
innocent until further evidence 
comes to light of his knowledge of 
the burglary and proceeding cover- 
up scheme. 

An interesting phenomenon has 
resulted. Since the Watergate 
incident when the Democratic 
offices were bugged and papers 
were stolen from Daniel Ellsberg's 
psychiatrist, the Republican party 
has been charged with the 
mismanagement of campaign 
funds, the President charged with 
the bombing of Cambodia, and 
more recently, he has been ac-

Being President means being at 
the end of the line, where the buck 
stops. And that is exactly what is 
happening now, especially with the 
White House tapes that have stirred 
up legal questions galore. Until now, 
the President has been only in- 
directly implicated with the 
Watergate mess. Ke accomplished 
this by merely cutting the valve off 
before planning of the scandal or its 
cover-up reached him. Now the 
President has evidence - evidence 
that could reveal his precise 

legislative and judicial branches of 
the government? President Nixon 
thinks not. 

At the time of this article, Special 
Prosecutor Archibald Cox and 
President Nixon's lawyers were due 

to announce any agreement 
established toward a compromise, 
but no decision had been reached. 
Neither the President nor his 
lawyers want to release the tapes at 
all. Why? 

Imagine all of the conversations 
the President has every day. 
Certainly he needs some record of

trying to protect by defending his 
executive privilidge. 

A compromise would protect all 
information on the tapes not 
relevant to Watergate. When this 
was porposed nearly two weeks ago 
by seven judges of the U. S. Court of 
Appeals for the District of 
Columbia, it was suggested that the 
President or a delegate meet with 
Cox. All of the information would 
then be evaluated and only the 
important portions turned over to

It would seem simple enough to 
hand over the tapes and settle the 
matter, especially if the President 
is innocent, but the issue at hand 
isn't so easily solved. The fact of the 

President's innocence isn't as 
important to him now as his 
defense of executive priviledge.

do, but officials would not confide

Three strikes -you 're out? 

In March, 1971, the State Board of 
Education denied a Northwestern SBA- 
sponsored proposal to allow the controlled 
sale of beer on campus. In the spring 
semester, 1972, the SBA again revived in- 
terest in the alcoholic beverage question, 
but general confusion in the governing 
structure with regard to proper procedure 
brought the actionary wheels to a grinding 
halt. And now in 1973, the SBA is planning yet 
another attempt to bring their plea before 
the Baton Rouge educational authority. 

This latest plunge into the state system 
promises to be the most organized and 
potentially, the one attempt that might 
convince the State Board members to 
'-d their original ruling. But the SBA is 
*";ed of the familiar baseball

. i<an. f beer , the SGA ( as it 

was then named) sent out a survey to the 
parents of the 6,000 Northwestern students. 
The results of this survey showed that with a 
40.3 percent return, 56.5 percent of these 
parents were in favor of the new guidelines. 
Forty-three (43) percent responded that they 
did not approve of such an action. 

Another argument that the student 
government utilized at the time was the 
precedents already set by Nicholls, USL, 
Tulane, and LSU, colleges and universities 
permitting the controlled sale of beer. 

When polled concerning their preference, 
the Northwestern student body affirmatively

talked -a bout 

responded with a 72 percent showing in favor 
of the SBA beer presentation. Student 
government in 1971 had done their 
homework before going to the State Board of 
Education, with the detailed outline of their 
beer governing policy. 

But Dr. Arnold R. Kilpatrick, Northwestern 
president, made an appearance before the 
State Board, where he spoke against the 
student government plan. He said, as quoted 
in the March 6, 1972 issue of the Current 
Sauce, "We don't want to create an at- 
mosphere where anyone would be tempted." 
The proposal was soundly defeated, with 
seven of the eleven members casting 
negative votes. 

The original proposal presented to the 
Board set forth several restrictions in ac- 
cordance with the state, parish and city 
regulations. Calling for the directed sale of 
beer in the Student Union the new beer 
proposal represented a landmark case of 
student involvement in the 1971-72 academic 

Then last spring the Usue was resurrected 
from tiic files and the beer proposal" began 
anew under the jurisdiction of the Student 

Rights Committee, with Jack Damico, now 
SBA president, serving as committee 
chairman. Al Theriault penned another, 
though essentially similar, proposition to 
present before the State Board of Education. 

Rumors of behind-the-scenes bargaining 
with the second beer proposal abounded and 
in a mass of confusion eminating from the 
uncertainty of the proper practice of at- 
taining a slot on the State Board agenda, the 
SBA missed the necessary two-month 
deadline prior to the Board meeting. 

And now the SBA plans their decisive third 
.time at bat, again hoping to play in the State 
Board ballpark in Baton Rouge. According to 
Damico, the beer proposal might be on the 
agenda for the December or January 

"We're going back to appeal the original 
decision and if the outcome is not a fair or

confusion in the SBA puts the

just one, the possibility of going to court 
seems very real," claimed Damico. "We 
would be willing to file suit to obtain this. I 
feel that this is a right that should not be 
denied the student body," 

To achieve the beer aim, Damico has in- 
stituted a Special Services Committee in the 
SBA, with a sub-committee to look into the 
feasibility of the beer proposal and to im- 
plement the necessary plans for its passage. 
Heplansto appoint, with the approval of the 
senate, co-chairmen of this sub-committee 
and several student members. He added 
that the beer proposal-round three- would 
soon be put into action and that success for 
this venture seemed not an optimistic boas-. 

Damico also hinted that many university 
faculty members were in favor of this new 
effort and that more efficient means of im- 
plementation might insure the projects's

success. He also added that the student 
delegation sent to persuade the State Board 
would be prepared with surveys, studies, and 
information to support their cause. 

The question of whether or not the Nor- 
thwestern student body will have beer sold 
on campus appears to again be rising to the 
forefront of attention. Plans are presently in 
the works to prepare an air-tight case for 
its approval with the State Board. Student

The airport has been bringing

TOP plans recruiting goals 
through NSU alumni appeal 

After the 50-cent increase in 
Associated Women Students' 
fees, there's more money in 
the till then ever before. The 
dollar fee women students 
paid this semester goes into 
the general AWS fund. This 
year, due to the additional 
amount of money, the funds 
will be budgeted. 

According to Mary Lynn 
Williamson, president of AWS, 
budgeting the money will 
create a more efficient system 
to allot funds into the 
necessary areas. A certain 
amount of money will be 
allotted to graduate dormitory 
counselors to initiate dor- 
mitory programs, such as 
movies, sports, and parties. 

Williamson stated that 
funds may also be spent to 
acquire a "top notch women's 
libber to speak; not 
necessarily because AWS 
advocates the movement, but 
to expose students to a 
broader scope of things." 

In addition to dorm ac- 
tivities and speakers, money 
is also used to purchase 
specific items for the dor- 
mitories such as sports 
equipment, toasters, or hot- 
plates. Items such as these 
will be proposed by the dorm 
counselors and approved by 
AWS executive council before 
money is turned over for the 

Minus kitchens for students 
to work in, AWS spends money 
to purchase items such as 

toasters and hot-plates. 
Although there are kitchens in 
most dormitories, none of 
them are available for student 
use. Housing director Bill Sch- 
wartz stated that utilization of 
the kitchens was impractical, 
due to the large number of 
students and the lack of kit- 
chen space. Presently the 
kitchen remain locked only 
occasionally being used for 
special group or dormitory 

Complaints have been made 
by residents of Louisiana 
Hall that hot plates were 
broken. Williamson stated 
that until the budget is 
completed, hopefully by the 
end of this week, items such as 
hotplates will have to wait. 

Small amounts of money are 
spent also on preparations for 
Mom and Dad's Day and 
special programs such as 
women's self-defense. 

In the past, AWS funds were 
spent when the need arose. 
Money last year went to the 
Natchitoches hot -seat, a 
discussion program; the 
donkey basketball game; the 
sexuality speaker series; and 
athletic equipment for Sabine. 

Commenting on AWS' 
function, Williamson said, 
"We ( AWS) have one real goal 
and that's to make dorm life 
as pleasant and enjoyable as 
possible. Anything we can do 
in spending the money to 
further this goal, we will do." 


Northwestern girls must 
walk softly and carry a big 
stick. The first session of the 
female self-defense course 
was cancelled last Wednesday 
night due to lack of attendance 
and has been rescheduled for 
Wednesday from 7-8 p. m. 

Tryouts for 
"marigolds" will be 
held today at 3 p.m. in 
the Little Theater, 
according to director 
Ray Schexnider.

Project TOP (Toward 
Outstanding Performance) is 
a statewide program to 
organize support for NSU 
through recruiting and fund 

Dr. C. B. "Lum" Ellis, 
assistant to the president, is 
the orginator of the TOP idea 
and hopes to bring NSU money 
and students through it's 

Goals of the program are 
numerous, and for this school 
session include a plan to raise 
$100,000 in tax deductible 
donations made to the NSU 
Foundation. These donations 
may be earmarked for any 
project or expense incurred by 
the university. 

Secondly, the foundation 
will attempt to involve 1,000 
alumni in recruiting through 
parties and recom- 
mendations. In different areas 
of the state, receptions for 
high school seniors and their 
parents will be planned 
periodically to acquaint 
possible recruits with NSU. 

Also, the program hopes to 
involve 1,500 alumni in fund 
raising over the state. The 
biggest appeal will be the 
Homecoming activities 
plann ed for Nov. 3. 

Homecomming 73 is to be 
the biggest celebration of it's 
kind in several years ac-

State universities face

According to an an- 
nouncement by the Coor- 
dinating Council for Higher 
Education, all Louisiana state 
colleges and universities will 
shortly undergo the most 



















thorough ^record audit ever 
conducted by that state 

The council plans to study 
the "quantity, levels and 
areas of each institution's 
student credit hour produc- 
tion." This procedure assists 
the council in the allocaton of 
state funds for the colleges 
and universities in Louisiana. 

This audit is planned to 
eliminate the individual 
bargaining which transpires 
between each college and 
university and the legislature 
to obtain a share of the state 

The two educational syst- 
ems in the state, the LSU 
Board of Supervisors and the 
State Board of Education are 
said to be participating in the 

parade to open houses for all 
Greeks and departments to 
the game between NSU and 
McNeese. Among the special 
events will be two dances after 
the game, an alumni banquet, 
a barbeque and pep really, 
campus-guided tours, and a 
big name entertainment. A 
free cartoon festival and 
babysitting services will be 
provided for the children of 

The final goal of TOP is to 
contact personally as many 
NSU alumni as possible. In 
order to successfully reach the 
former graduates, the state 
was divided into six regions, 
each with a regional director. 
Each region was further 
subdivided into parishes.

Named as state director for 
Project TOP was Joseph 
Traigle of Baton Rouge. 

Postal change 

Effective this semester, the 
box rent fee for the university 
post office is $1 per person 
receiving mail and not $1 per 
box as was the case before, 
according to E. A. Freeman, 
coordinator of university 

"The cost of everything else 
has gone up," he said," and 
we felt the best way to meet 
this was to raise the box rent." 

According to Freeman, 
there has been some confusion 
with students who are ac- 
customed to sharing a box and 
paying only a percentage of 
the fee. Each student who has 
not paid for his individual 
mailing privileges must do so. 

Nursing program offers alternative 

The student with limited 
time and money can now 
receive an associate degree in 
nursing in only two years at 
Northwestern. The completion 
of the Associate degree 
enables the student to take the 
State Board Examination and 
if successful, become a 
registered nurse. 

This new program was 
initiated in 1972 when the 
existing Confederate 
Memorial School of Nursing 
was phased out and Nor- 
thwestern began its two-year 

The associate degree 
program is presently 
operating under limited 
enrollment guidelines. Only 
125 students were to be en- 
tered in the new program in 
the fall of 1972- and 1973. 

It is based completely on the 
Shreveport campus with all 
classes, including non-nursing 
courses, taught there.

The associate degree 
program differs from the 
already existing four-year BS 
program basically in 
philosophy. The associate 
degree program emphasizes 
the technical aspects of 
nursing, with only a little 
more than half of the non- 
nursing course requirments of 
the four-year program. 

According to Mrs. Barbara 
Moffett, nursing instructor, 
"The technical practitioners 
can function with intellectual 
and technical competence in 
consultation with the 
professional to give care to 
groups of patients." 

Although the associate 
degree program does offer 
distinct advantages, it has 
some disadvantages to be 
considered, according to 
Moffett. A registered nurse 
with a four-year BS degree 
might have a better chance of 
advancement into a super- 
visory position in some 
hospitals. The nurse with a BS 
will receive a higher salary 

than a nurse with only an 
associate degree in some 
hospitals and some hospital 
nursing positions are open 
only to nurses with a BS 

NSU has yet to graduate any 
students from the new 
program, but some students 
were graduated who con- 
verted from the Confederate 
program. These graduates 
have had no problem finding 
jobs and have done well on 
their state board exams, 
according to Moffett. 

Both the four-year BS 
program and the new two- 
year associate degree 
program have advantages and 
disadvantages. Now the 
student can decide which he

Psychology of persuasion 

By Melante Babin 

Do you ever stop to consider why you buy 
Uitra-Brite toothpaste instead of Crest? or 
Camay soap instead of Ivory? or Budweiser

It's all in the advertising, in the selling to 
the senses of Mr. Consumer. And whether he 
knows it or not, whether he likes it or not, the 
mind and pocketbook of Mr. Consumer are 
being manipulated every time he buys tooth- 
paste or soap or beer or practically anything. 
The average American has surprisingly 
little control over his actions in the 

The endless competition for the the 
American dollar has spurred the successful 
large-scale use of mass psychology by the 
advertising branch of industry. Called 
"motivational research" or "symbol 
manipulation" by the professional per- 
suaders who utilize it, this is, in simple 
terms, the art of learning what motivates 
people in making choices, In other words, 
industry is finding out what makes a person 
tick, and they're using it to their economic 

Motivational research is a post-World War 
II phenomenon which really gained 
momentum in the mid-50's in the United 
States. American merchandisers, un- 
satisfied with the results of traditional 
selling techniques, began to seek guidance 
from psychiatrists and social scientists. 
Presently, two thirds of America's hundred 
largest advertisers are using the so-called 
"depth approach" selling strategy. 
Manufacturers are now looking for the 
"whys" behinds the consumer's buying 
behavior as they shovel billions of dollars a 

year into advertising their wares. 

According to Louis Cheskin, head of a 
Chicago research firm specializing in this 
depth approach, "Motivation research uses, 
techniques designed to reach the sub- 
conscious mind because preferences 
generally are determined by factors of 
which the individual is not conscious." 

It's a rather frightening fact that many of 
a person's actions are made not on a 
rational, logical basis, but on a totally un- 
conscious, irrational basis. For example, 
toothbrushing habits reflect a type of 
irrational behavior which is motivated by 
individual personality. Most extroverts 
brush their teeth in the hope they'll sparkle 
and shine. . . Hypochondriacs and a few 
others are tht only ones really concerned 
about decay germs. The majority of people 
brush their teeth solely for the taste sen- 

Advertisers, capitalizing on illogical 
human behavior, gear their toothpaste 
campaigns to personality types. Ultra-Brite 
toothpaste promises a wham-o sex appeal 
smile sure to wipe out any unsuspecting 
member of the opposite sex. Crest people 
have 33 per cent fewer cavities. Close-up 
vows clean teeth combined with fresh breath 
for "close up moments." 

Consumers are swayed, not by the facts 
concerning the different toothpastes, but by 
the advertising — the image of each par- 
ticular brand. There really isn't any 
significant difference between the various 
brands of whiskey, cigarettes, beer, cake 
mixes, or autos, just to name a few. 

Ad men aim at building highly-appealing 
personalities into products. They attempt to

Cigarette makers are big image builders,

Proctor and Gamble has created a living

Merchandisers have found enormous 
profit in reinforcing a person's desire to have 
the very newest things. The fear of ap- 
pearing anything less than up-to-the-minute 
is a driving force in consumerland. Car 
manufacturers strive to make everyone 
ashamed to drive a car for more than two or 
three years, regardless of whether the 
automobile is still in top shape. 

Clothing manufacturers are another group 
which emphasizes the newness appeal. With 
the advent of each season, the consumer is 
spoon-fed the latest fashions, and if he 
doesnt buy (heaven forbid!) he's definitely 
not "in" - a fate worse than death in 
today's self-conscious society. 

Men who once considered the changing 
fashion scene a woman's domain are now 
equal targets in the advertiser's line of fire. 
Today's man is as fussy about how 
he looks as any woman, much to the 
delight of the fashion industry.

To what extent is the consumer at 
dustry's mercy? Who knows? Maybe as much 
as he allows himself to be, although the men 
who chart his buying behavior tend to reject 
this view, saying that consumer self-control 
is almost nil. In any event it's a bit un-

College girl favors variety 
in her '73 campus wardrobe 

This spring Glamour 
Magazine took a cross-country 
poll of five hundred girls in 

random colleges, large and 
small, rural and urban, to find 
out just how many items they 

had of everything from jeans 
to long evening dresses. What 
they own is likely to come as a 











surprise to anyone who thinks 
blue jeans have some kind of 
monopoly on campus. 
In Classes 
One student tallies it up 
precisely when she says, 
"Anything goes - from jeans 
to long skirts." Jeans, by far, 
lead as being the most 
popular, with all types of tops- palazzo 

over shirts, turtlenecks, body 
suits, smocks , T-shirts, shrink 
tops, work shirts. Other 
toppings are blazers, battle 
and various shaped jackets. 
But right next to jeans are 
skirts, dresses ("sporty))), 
pant suits, "nice pants" (wool 
and knit), "baggies" and

them chiefly in leather and 
suede. Brand names dropped:

Apparently jewelry is 
sometimes as much in 
evidence in class as on dates - 
watches, rings, bracelets, 
earrings, necklaces. Also 
scarves, handbags, totes. 

Formal Dates 
For proms and big or very 
special parties, the long dress 
or "formal" is most popular; 
halter-necked and backless 
are the shapes singled out, 
while fabrics are crepe, velvet 
or chiffon. Second in line are 
long skirts with dressed 
shirts or blouses. Many girls 
mention that they oc- 
casionally wear short 
"dressy" or "Sunday" 
dresses, midi dresses, midi 
pant outfits or 

Informal Dates 

Most girls say that what 
they wear to classes they wear 
on informal dates, too, with 
jeans leading again.

All that remains at the site 
today is a simple plaque which 
reads, "Founded by St. Denis - 
1714; the oldest permanent 
settlement in Louisiana and 
the entire Louisiana Purchase 
and territory west of the 
Mississippi. On this site Fort 
St. Jean Baptist e was built 
about 1715." 

What the plaque cannot do, 
obviously, is take the reader 
back to that time when he 
might hear the chop of an axe, 
a long moan of splintering 
wood, and acypres's crashing 
to the ground. 

In 1712, Governor-General 
Lamothe Cadillac dispatched 
an expedition. It was sent out 
to establish trade in a region 
rich with possibilities. 

Cadillac picked as his leader 
for the expedition, Louis 
Juchereau de St. Denis, then 
commandant at Fort Biloxi. 

The party of 25 French and 
six Indians left Mobile, Ala. in 
Sept. 1714 and headed for the 
gulf. Their trek took them 
through Lake Ponchartrain 
and various bayous to the 
Mississippi River and finally 
to the mouth of the Red River. 

Once on the Red River, the 
party, paddling their canoes, 
found the going easier. The 
only difficulty encountered 
were the rapids near what is 
now Alexandria. It was here 
they had to portage their 

In late fall however, miles 
upstream, they met a for- 
midable obstacle. Ahead lay 

By James Ross 
many miles of logs and 
driftwood. St. Denis decided 
that here he would build a 
small settlement, leave a 
small contingent of 10 men 
and press on. 

With the help of Indians he 
constructed two cabins and 
the settlement of Natchitoches 
was begun. 

In 1715, 25 Frenchmen 
commanded by Phillippe du 
Tisnet proceeded to build a 
fort again with the help of the 
Indians. The French had 
decided to build a fort on this 
site to check the westward 
movement of the Spanish. It 
was to be named Fort St. Jean 

The site chosen for the fort 
was on the west bank of the 
Red River (now the upper part 
of the Cane River and 
Chaplin's Lake) at the point of 
juncture with "Riviere aux 
Cannes" (now the lower part 
of Chaplin's lake. 

In 1732 the fort was finally 
completed and was made up of 
a seven -room barracks for the 
troops, a two-room guard 
house, a two-room home for 
the commandant, a two-room 
home for the store keeper, a 
chapel, a store, two houses for 
servants, a kitchen, outdoor 
oven, and a powderhouse. 

Enclosing all this was a 
rectangular palisade con- 
sisting of a wall of nine foot 
cypress posts, bound together 
for strength, and a second row 
of posts, six feet high.

began a massive recruiting 
campaign that resulted in a 
good crop of high school and 
junior college signees. 

The Indians, who suffered 
heavily from graduation, have 
only three regulars returning 
on offense-senior Jimmy 
Jones at tackle, sophomore 
Mark Parker at center, and 
sophomore Gerald Prince at 
split receiver. This could have 
been a problem; but due to 
Keller's recruiting, the of- 
fense could pick from the 10 
junior college products and a 
large and talented group of 
freshman to fill, the holes left 

On the other hand the In- 
dians ' defensive unit is a 
veteran group that includes 
only one non-letterman. A 
total of nine starters are back, 
although a couple of them lost 
their jobs in the spring. Keller 
says that the defense did a 
good job last year, but did 
ease off in the final period. But 
Keller is pleased because they 
are bigger than last year's 
unit with a line that averages 
223 pounds and quicker. 

Two standouts on the Indian 
team have been quarterback 
Boyd Cole and tailback Joe 
Mitchell. Cole is one of the 10 

Mississippi junior college 
signees Keller recruited. As a 
former junior college star, he 
was the starting quarterback 
for the North team in the 
Mississippi Junior College all- 
star game. In a single game 
Cole has had runs of 72, 75, 63, 
and six yards. He had a good 
spring game. An injury was 
expected to sideline him. for 
six weeks, but the tough 
Mississippi junior shook it off 
and came back to play in both 
the Troy State and Mississippi 
State games. 

Behind Cole at the tailback 
position is sophomore Joe 
Mitchell. Keller has nothing 
but praise for the 6-3, 220- 
pound sophomore. Mitchell, 
who has taken over for Ail- 
American Jimmy Edwards, 
was impressive in the spring 
game and the games against 
Troy State and Mississippi 
State. Mitchell, who is ex- 
pected to be an All-American 
candidate, runs the 40-yard 
dash in 4.5 seconds and has the 
power needed as tailback. 
Along with Mitchell will be 
senior fullback Matthew 

The men who will be doing 
the blocking for the Indians 
this year are Larry Kussman, 
James Sturdivant, Bill 
Scanlon, Jimmy Jones and 
Errick Stephens. 

On defense, Northeast has 
a veteran team returning. 
They are Frank Landry, 
Bubba Ellis, Alfred Gross, 
Richard Frederickson, Keith 
Hickman, Glenn Fleming, 
Chester Pleasant, Greg 
Manley, Don LeBoyd, Joel 
Han berry, and David Man- 

The Indians have a week of 
rest before they meet Nor- 
thwestern. This will be the 
22nd meeting between the two 
teams with Northwestern 
having won 17 of the 21 
previous meetings. 

Top Twenty— 
where's NSU 



The first national small college Top Twenty polls came out 
week on the Associated Press and the United Press International 
services. A notable absence from the upper echelons of these 
was Northwestern State University. 

The AP poll does not even list the Demons among the other tearnj 
receiving votes. The UPI ranks NSU 9th in the nation, better than ti 
AP, but still not good enough. 

Really, what do you need to get ranked in these polls? The Demo 
have walked all over their first three opponents, including a defendi 
national champion and another top-ranked team. It doesn't seem rig}J 
but as I commented last week, these polls are seldom right. 

A close look at the polls will give the casual fan a few surprises. OiJ 
of the biggest shocks is the inclusion of this week's foe NortheasI 
Louisiana among the teams receiving first place votes in the AP polL e Tigers frc 
The Indians had not even won a game in the 1973 season, having tie<L e f it for 
their first two contests. And they get a first place vote. I've hearse Demons t 
from sources that NLU head coach Ollie Keller is on the selectiorilLg Wckoff i 
committee, so that may be the reason. * M D i avs (

Polls don't mean much, but as long as we're going to have one, let' 
at least have one that is fair, unbiased, informative - and correct. 

King—Riggs: a carnival 

At first I thought it was to be a tennis match. But it turned out to be 
more of a carnival. 

For the record, Billie Jean King defeated Bobby Riggs 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 in 
the much-ballyhooed "Battle of the Sexes" last week. It wasn't much 
of a contest, but it didn't reach much of a verdict either. I mean, no 
earth-shattering conflicts were decided by the results of this small 

The only thing that matchup proved was that Billie Jean could 
defeat this certain "55-year old cadaver with one foot in the grave." 
Both of the competitors turned out to be wrong in their approach to the 
match. Women's tennis is not for the birds, as Riggs put it, and all 
womanhood is not going to forsake the home tor the courts, as 
contended by King' supporters. 

It would have been the same if Riggs would have won. A victory by 
him would not mean that any old fogey with a drop shot can go out and 
beat any stronger youngster in a skirt thirty years his junior. 

In fact, I wonder if King could repeat her victory in a series ol 
matches, or if Bad Bobby could again come forth and defeat Margaret 
Court as he did last Mother's Day. 

One thing is obvious: the gaps in performance between men and 
women athletes is narrowing in the skill sports. The only difference is 
that more concentration has been placed on the development of 
athletics for the male of the species, and therefore they are peaked as 
far as performance in concerned. With more concentration on the 
feminine side of athletics, performances will no doubt improve.

as fast (Johnson had 4.6 speed 
in the 40 compared to 4.8 for 
Cage.) However, Cage showed 
that he was more than a power 
runner against Southwest 
Olkahoma when he turned on 
the burners and dashed out- 
side right end for a 64-yard 

The Jonesboro-Hodge 
product finished that night 
with 105 yards on 13 carries to 
give him his second straight 
100-yard game. Cage rushed 
for 115 yards on 20 carries in 
the season opener sgainst 
East Texas State. 

That gives Cage an 
average of 110 yards a game 
and a 6.7 average per carry. 

"I really haven't paid any 
attention to my statistics," 
Cage said modestly. "All I 
know is that when I have a 
good game, then our offensive 
linemen did a good job. I can 
show you on the film where 
they are blocking better this 

As a backup man to Johnson 
last year, Cage gained 197 
yards rushing on 57 carries. 

Besides his rushing 
statistics, Cage has also 
improved as an all-around 
player. He was NSU's top 
grader in the offensive back- 
field in both of the first two 
games. ;'My blocking is im-

age, Demons roll, 28-7 

By Dan McDonald 
Sauce Sports Editor 
e '01 Man River, Mario Cage just 
jps rolling along. 

£3ge made it three straight 100-yard 
■nes last Saturday night as he rum- 
v|fb r 148 yards to lead Northwestern 
U g 28-7 win over the Bishop College 
s at Dallas. 

io had help, though, as the 
l0 ns garnered their third victory of 
1973 campaign without a loss. Full - 
Mike Harter provided most of the 
wer on the scoreboard as he 
across for two touchdowns, and 
pjSU defensive backfield was guilty 
and larceny as they picked off four 
p t Bishop aerials. 
„ wasn't as easy as it sounds, though, 
the AP polLg Tigers from Texas made a ball 
having tie<L f it for three quarters. 
I've hear<k e Demons tallied first, taking the 
e selectior ljning kickoff and marching 84 yards 
eight plays. Cage and quarterback

rect. f drive, provided the key yardage as

Bishop defensive line with a powerful 
infantry attack. Mike Harter capped 
the march with a two-yard smash over 
right guard. Randy Walker added the 
point after. 

After the first of four interceptions, 
this one by Don McAllen, the Demons 
went on another trek to paydirt. Harter 
picked up a key first down on a fourth 
down situation to continue the drive, 
and Cage went the final 22 stripes for 
the score, capping the 62-yard march. 
Walker's conversion was perfect to run 
it to 14-0, an apparently safe cushion at 
the time. 

The Demons had plenty of op- 
portunities to add to their total, both 
late in the second period and all through 
the third. During this period, the Tigers 
also threatened to put points on the 
board. But fumbles by NSU and picked- 
off passes by Bishop negated both 
teams' chances. 

Early in the final period Nor- 
thwestern went on another length-of- 
the-field drive, as Cox led them 57 yards 
in 11 plays to their next score. Harter 

again provided the points from two 
yards out, and again Walker's PAT was 

The Dallas-based Tigers then 
threatened to make a contest of it when 
they drove to the Demon 10, and from 
there scored on a pass from quar- 
terback Larry Hilton to end Joe Pierce. 

However, NSU came back to ice the 
contest away when safety John Kelly 
grabbed off an errant Hilton pass and 
returned it 41 yards to the Tiger 35. 
That set the stage for tailback Sidney 
Thornton's 13-yard touchdown jaunt 
with only 27 seconds remaining. 

With his 100-yard performance, cage 
became the first running back in North- 
western history to rush for 100 yards or 
more in three consecutive contests. 

The other two interceptions garnered 
by the stingy Demon defense were 
provided by cornerbacks Jarvis Blinks 
and John Dil worth. 

The Demons, after being all but 
ignored in the national polls during the 
first two weeks, have made their bid for 
a higher ranking. It's up to the pollsters

Defense in pursuit of 
Cage heads offensive 

There were no new in- 
dividual leaders in Nor- 
thwestern State University's 
football statistics after three 
games, but the Demon 
secondary continued its hot 
pursuit of the school pass 
interception record. 

Already Northwestern's 
defense had picked off nine 
passes, including two each by 
safety Skipper Morgan and 
cornerbacks John Dilworth 
and Jarvis Blinks. 

The Demons swiped four 
passes-one less than the 
single game school record- 
Saturday night in the 28-7 
victory over Bishop College at 
Dallas, Tex. 

Back in 1950 Northwestern's 
defense intercepted a record 
28 passes, but the 1973 Demons 
could break that record if they 
continue to steal passes at 

their present rate. Averaging 
three thefts a game, NSU 
could finish with 33 in- 
terceptions this season. 

Offensively, tailback Mario 
Cage continues to make most 
of the noise for NSU's 
powerful ground machine. 
The 190-pound junior out of 
Jonesboro-Hodge leads the 
Demons in total offense and 
rushing with 368 yards afoot 
on 56 carries. 

That's an average of 6.6 
yards per carry and 122.7 
yards rushing per game for 
Cage. Cage rambled for a 
career best 148 yards against 
Bishop and rushed for over 100 
yards for the third straight 
game-an NSU school record. 

Split end Reggie Thompson, 
who sat out the game with 
Bishop, continues to lead the 
Demons in pass receiving and

Slate opens in 
flag football 

The beginning of the two 
flag football leagues opened 
the intramural schedule for 
the fall semester last week. 
Women's volleyball com- 
petition followed football by 
opening two days later. 

The football competition is 
divided into two leagues, the 
fraternity league and the 
independent league. A total of 
21 teams are participating in 
the round tournament, with 11 
independent teams and ten 
fraternity squads entered in 
the competition. 

The first round of fraternity 
league play was played on 
Sept. 17, with five games on 
tap. Sigma Tau Gamma was 
most impressive as they rolled 

over Tau Kappa Epsilon 48-0. 
In other games, Kappa Sigma 
beat Omega Psi Phi 26-7, 
Kappa Alpha No. 1 defeated Pi 
Kappa Phi 27-6, Kappa Alpha 
No . 2 took a forfeit from PEK, 
and the Theta Chi-Kappa 
Sigma B encounter was 
postponed until a later date. 

Round one of the in- 
dependent division began the 
following day, with four 
games scheduled. The 
liberators loom as the class of 
the league as they crushed 
Duty's Dirty Dozen 37-0. Other 
action saw the Warthogs 
dump the BSU 12-6, Couyon 8 
blast the ROTC 20-7, and Blitz 
capture a forfeit from Pru- 
dhomme Hall. 

Golf team adds to schedule 

golfers," Herron said. "I know 
our team will enjoy competing 
in the meet at Galveston too." 
Coach Herron feels that this 

year's squad has great 
potential and should establish 
themselves as one of the top 
teams in the NAIA.

five field goals for a team best 
21 points. 

Fullback Mike Harter 
scored twice from two yards 
out against Bishop and now 
has 18 points for the season. 

Northwestern's offense is 


averaging 304.7 yards a game 
(238.0 rushing and 63.3 
passing) while the Demon 
defense has held its opponents 
to 216.7 yards a game ( 81.5 
rushing and 131.0 passing). 

The Demons are scoring at a 
25.0 clip per game while 
holding the opposition to 4.7 
points a game. 

Northwestern faces its 
toughest assignment of the 
season thus far when Nor- 
theast Louisiana invades 
Natchitoches Saturday night. 
The Demons will put a 3-0-0 
record on the line against 
NLU's 0-0-2 record. Northeast 
had an open date last Satur- 
day night after tying 
Mississippi State 21-21 the 
week before. 

Troy State tied Northeast 15-

Randy Jones, Coffee-House 
chairman, is urging all 
students to participate in the 
Coffee-House. In the past the 
Coffee-House was on the 
college circuit and brought in 
guests from various parts of 
the country. Since then this 
has been discontinued and 
now entertainment is provided 
by students around campus. 

The first Coffee-House is 
scheduled for Oct. 8-9 at 8 p in. 
in the Student Union ballroom. 
Slated to perform are the 
Steve Wells Trio, The Blue 
Grass Boys, and Terry Barbin

Demon Marching Band add

BAND DIVISIONS - Each division of the band is 

important to the success of the halftime show. 
Representing the band is John Clement with Pat 
Haynes and Judy Fogleman representing the Flag 
Corps. Stuart Bird serves as drum major. Cynthia 
Echenhofer is one of the marching majorettes. 

NSU selected 
as testing area 

Dr. Jerry Payne, director of 
the NSU Demon Marching 
Band, is responsible not only 
for conducting the band, but 
also for the entire 
organizational setup essential 
to correlate the many-faceted 
group into a marching and 
entertaining unit. 

The 95-member band is 
divided into five basic groups, 
each with the ability to work 
independently or combine 
forces with the other divisions. 
Perhaps the showiest section 
of the band is the twirling line. 

These 12 girls project a 
flashiness at halftime needed 
for a lively show. Ouida Rice, 
head t wirier, assisted by 
Sherry Anderson 
choreograph the routines and 
teach them to the other girls 
on the line. The twirlers are 
Roxanna McCormick, Susan 
Haynes, Deborah Crowell, 
Kim Hemperley, Janice 
Lancaster, Laura Mc Knight, 

Nadra Smith, Cathy 
Wilkinson, Charlotte Creamer 
and Pamela Underdo wn. 

Another splash of color is 
added with the utilization of a 
flag corps. Payne explained 
the reason for the flag corps as 
"a visual effect that gives us 
another facet to work with 
other than the twirling, 
dancing and music. This year 
we lost so many that were on 
the flag corps last year that 
we selected them on an in- 
terview basis only. The main 
qualification was prior 
marching experience." 

The 10-member corps is 
guided by Diane Mclnnis. 
Working under her are Wanda 
Bailey, Judy Fogleman, Pat 
Haynes, Mary Mathis, Shirley 
Opferkuch, Julia Patterson, 
Lillian Priest, Joy Snider and 
Barbara Vinson. 

A rather recent addition to 
the band is the dress line or 
marching majorettes. They 

form the first rank of the 
band. These girls help by 
adding numbers to the band 
which are needed for a more 
grandiose effect. 


Now to the true work horses 
of the organization: the band 
members themselves. The life 
or death of a show is entirely 
in the hands of these 
musicians. Without them 
there would be no show. 

Every band must have a 
drum major to give the 
commands and lead the group 
in the execution of the mar- 
ching show. Stuart Bird, who 
has had prior band teaching 
experience, has been ap- 
pointed as this year's drum 
major. He works closely with 
Payne in marching rehearsals 
to drill the band and correlate 
the show. 


Payne is the master mind 
behind the whole layout. He

Ouida Rice, head twirler adds vivacity to halftime activities. 

begins a halftime show by 
deciding on a theme ap- 
propriate to the occasion. The 
next step is to filter through 
all available music and select 
numbers to fit the theme. 
"For example," said Payne, 
"for the Northeast game I 
have selected a Dixieland 
theme. I looked through our 
music library and found 
several Dixieland numbers 
which I will later time." 

Frequently Payne will 
choose a chart and arrange it 
himself. "This way we can do 
more current things and also 
custom fit the tune to the band 
we have," Payne stated. 
Approximately half of the 
music performed has been 
arranged by Payne. Richard 
Whorton and John Clement, 
both music majors, have also 
done some arranging on their 

After the music has been 
selected and timed, Payne 
begins to map ou: the mar- 
ching formations. Each 
member of each unit is given a 
sheet with specific directions 
for him to follow. This also 
tells him where he should be in 
relation to the other people. 
Everyone must be accounted 

The show is now ready for 
rehearsal with the band. 
Payne directs the band to 
work out all the kinks in the 
music and to perfect the 
technique. The band takes the 
music on the field and adds the 
marching. All this is done 
during rehearsals from 4-6 
p.m. every MWF. 

Now that the show has been 
pieced together it is ready for 
polishing. These many hours 
of worTfcqnly add up to around 
a seven-mirmte show, but the 
more professional a job, the 
more prestige is acquired for 
the band and NSU. These 
shows aid in recruiting new

The fate of the new state board of 
regents - the superboard - seems to 
hinge on action by the Constitutional 
Convention with the announcement 
that its control will be delayed six 

In a ruling by Atty. Gen. William 
Guste's office the superboard created 
by the legislature last year was ex- 
pectedto come into being Jan. 1, 1974, 
but the actual document was unclear 
on the date. 

If the board did take control in 
January, it would still be subject to the 
system set up by the constitutional 
convention, which is expected to adopt 
a new plan for higher education. 

According to the ruling, the overall 
intent of the law seems toindicate that 
the superboard would become 
operative in July, 1974, six months 
later than expected.

to deal with the issue in two to three

Show & Tell 

A program of observation and 
evaluation of NSUf acuity by Dr. C. 
F. Thomas, vice president of 
academic affairs, and the academic 
deans and department heads, will 
not be implemented yet since such 
action violates Equal Employment 
Opportunity Commission (EEOC) 

The announcement was made by 
Dr. Arnold R. Kilpatrick in a 
memorandum to faculty last week. 
The evaluation is designed to assist 
the faculty member and to provide 
a basis of a record of performance, 
the memo explained. 

Steps are now being taken to 
develop a procedure in line with the 
federal requirements. A university 
committee will be appointed to 
develop an evaluation from which 
will be reviewed by EEOC. After 
approval, observations will then be 

"It is important to note that a 
primary feature of an acceptable 
form is that the individual being 
observed has the right to read the 
comments and the right to attach 
any remarks they feel ap- 
propriate." said Kilpatrick in the 
faculty notice. 

A separate self-study evaluation 
is underway now to be submitted to 
the Southern Assn. for a review of 
the university accreditation. 

The report will be made to the 
association which will send a 
committee of its own to the 
university next year. The ac- 
creditation process is done every 10 

The first step toward the con- 
struction of Northwestern's 
recreational complex has been taken, 
according to Student Union Director 
Robert W. Wilson. 

About 25 engineers from "C" Co., 
769th Battalion a National Guard unit 
based in Alexandria, arrived on the 
weekend of Sept. 22 to begin con- 
struction of a road leading to the 
proposed site of the complex. 

The unit, under the command of 
Capt. James Foster, will continue to 
make periodic visits to the campus 
for the purpose of helping in the 
construction of the complex. 

"The unit will make about one trip a 
month to the campus," Wilson of- 

Arriving with the guard unit were 
bulldozers, graders and various other 
machines used in road construction. 

Wilson hurried to add that the first 
construction on the project should not 
be taken as a final okay on the com- 

"The whole complex is still in the 
planning stages," asserted Wilson. "If 
a grant can be obtained from the state 
and federal agencies, the National 
Guard will be asked to do the earth 

moving work in preparation for the 
recreational facilities." 

According to Wilson, something 
should be heard in about a month as far 
as the grant is concerned. 

"We are in constant contact with the 
agencies involved in the granting of the 
monies," said Wilson. "The 
correspondence is concerned with 
minor matters that may come up for 
debate later. We want all of this 
cleared up before a final okay comes." 

"Everything is favorable at this 
time," he said. "All that we are doing 
now is ironing out certain parts of the 
whole project." 

According to Wilson, the federal and 
state agencies would pay about half of 
the one million dollars needed to build 
the recreational complex. NSU would 
pay the rest. 

Rating a priority in the completion 
of the project is a swimming pool and 
a golf course.

Northwestern music faculty on charges 
of possession of marijuana. 

According to officials, Hobson 
Jackson of Houston, Tex. was arrested 
Friday by FBI officers on a federal 
warrant for aiding and abetting in a 
Texas bank robbery. 

Jackson was not a Northwestern 
student but was visiting Miss Nelda 
Reid, 28, an instructor of music. He was 
followed here by federal officials and 
after his arrest was taken by federal 
marshals to Shreveport. 

According to Chief of Police Harry 
Hyams, a search warrant was obtained 

for Jackson's car - a black Cadillac - 
and marijauna seeds were found. 

"We also got a search warrant for her 
apartment and found smoking 
paraphernalia and a substance 
suspected to be marijuana," he said. 
Seeds suspected to be marijuana were 
also found in her car, Hyams said. 

A warrant was also issued for 
Jackson on possession of marijuana. 

to gain altitude. The reason the plane 
did not gain altitude will probably be 
explained in a Federal Aviation 
Agency report expected to be made 
public in 30 days. 

The aircraft being used was capable 
of carrying ten passengers and was not 
overloaded, according to weight 

"I have performed a complete 
autopsy on the body of the pilot and no 
signs of drugs were found," said Dr. 
Charles Cook, Natchitoches Parish 

Cook has also stated that about 
three packs of marijuana were found 
on the body of Croce and a small 
amount of tablets that are believed to 
be uppers and downers were also 
found on some of the other bodies. 
There is no indication that any of the 
persons aboard the plane were using 
them at the time of the crash. 

"There is no doubt that Elliott was 
the pilot of the aircraft and was flying 
it at the time of the crash," said Sheriff 
Sam James. 

Reports that Croce was found in the 
co-pilot's seat are correct. 

ederal funds for jobs cut 27 percent 

by Cathy Seymour 

^ e ral funds available for the

( ken cut 27 percent for all 
pities, according to Mrs. Ann 
Py» director of financial aid. 


j| reduction has directly affected 
„ bv reducing the amount of money 
^ a *>le to pay student workers. 

I* y ear funds are requested by the 
^ ci «l Aid Office for the coming 
I *nd these funds are then matched 
" This year a reduction by the 

federal government in the amount 
requested caused the dollars used for 
student employment to be stretched in 
order to help more students. Requests 
for jobs exceeded the number of 
dollars awarded, Mrs. McNeely said. 

According to John Radcliffe, 
cafeteria manager, the reduction in 
student workers has been critical for 
the cafeteria. Eleven student workers 
are assigned from financial aid and are 
presently working. More students were 
assigned, but either did not enter 
school or did not accept the job. 

As many as 40 workers have been 
assigned in previous years and the 
difference has caused the cafeteria 
serious financial problems Radcliffe 
said. The void left by the absent 
workers was filled with workers which 
the cafeteria must pay, he added. 

According to Mrs. McNeely the 
student workers for the fall semester 
are approximately 818. These are the 
students on the college payroll. In- 
cluded with the student workers are the 
student housing personnel. 

Jobs in the housing area are awarded 
on the basis of leadership abilities and 
character rather than on need alone, 

according to Bill Schwartz, housing 
director. If, however, the housing 
student meets the federal 
requirements, he may be paid from 
Federal funds. 

Much consideration is given to the 
assigning of students to campus jobs, 
Mrs. McNeely said. A person's abilities 
and skills are pertinent to job 

The goal of CWSP is to "place a 
student in a job where he can do useful 
and meaningful work," said Mrs. 

Students working at these jobs are 
paid by the hour.

The new no-sale approach 

As nationwide attention focuses on the 
financial considerations of the U. S. in- 
flationary scheme and the sky-rocketing 
economic cycle, the typical college student- 
is left with the pressing monetary dilemma: 
how to make the shrinking dollar buy today 
what yesterday one could procure with even 
a little change on the side. In this age of 
consumerism vs. the hard-core sales ap- 
proach, the student more than over realizes 
the competitive drive afoot to separate him 
from his earnings. One answer to his 
problem: comparative shopping. 

The widely circulated myth that a tube of 
Gleem toothpaste or a spray can of Right 
Guard deodorant costs the same no matter 
the place of purchase is no more. Students 
are beginning to feel the economic pinch 
and they are beginning to realize that not 
only can quantity and quality fluctuate 
considerably on the product market, but that 
a careful scrutiny of the price range of ar- 
ticles is an absolute necessity. 

In checking the various prices of the 
everyday hygiene products sold in the 
Student Union Bookstore, it was found that 
some disparity of costs existed between the 

establishment and a similar off-campus 
operation. The results of a careful shopping 
spree through the Northwestern Bookstore 
and this competitor revealed: Items were 
generally pricedhigher in the Bookstore. 

For example a 1.7 oz. tube of dandruff- 
fighting Head & Shoulders shampoo, selling 
for $.79 at the Bookstore, is listed at $.74 at 
the near-by merchant. 

A medium-size tube of Prell shampoo is 
sold for $.69 cents at the Bookstore and $.59 

Prices are rising 

the student takes heed. 

at its competitor, a 14 percent mark-up. 

And again for the hair, a 13 oz. can of Miss 
Breck hair setting spray, selling for $.99 at 
the campus Bookstore, rings the cash 
register at $.89 at the economy outlet. 

A .65 oz. tube of acne-agent Clearasil costs 
$.98 at the Bookstore, and the same tube 
retails for $.87 at the lower-priced store - a 
savings of $.12. 

A 4 oz. can of Gillette Dry Look spray for 
men, which sells at the campus supplier for 
$1., is priced at just $.86 at this same com- 

petitor - again a few pennies saved. 

A Techmatic Razor with adjustable bands 
goes for $2.29 in the Student Union, and 
retails for a $.20 savings in the off-campus 
retailer - just $2.09. And a Gillette Ad- 
justable Razor with two platninum-plus 
blades shows even a greater mark-up in price 
- $2.95 at the Bookstore and $1.98 at its 

So what do all these facts and figures have 
to do with the Northwestern student 

With the growing cost of education, 
students are becoming conscious of their 
buying tendencies. No longer are they 
content to merely grab the first item, throw 
it on the exchange counter, and shell out the 
necessary money for the purchase. Students 
are beginning to take the time to be alert 
consumers - ready to bargain and haggle in 
the financial world of commerce. 

College students are beginning to look at 
their pocketbooks and wallets and to un- 
derstand that a few pennies here and there 
can add up. They're even beginning to utilize 
their defense mechanism - the no-sale ap-

Are students fighting a losing battle 
in their efforts ? 

6 Love letters in the sand 9 

Is the art of writing 
controversial and 
provacative 'Letters to the 
Editor' fading into oblivion? 

The U. S. mail service every day 
delivers to the Current Sauce office 
a large sampling of envelopes 
mechanically addressed to 
"Student Editor," "Student 
Newspaper," or just "Current 
Sauce." Most of these bulk 
mailings, advertising and 
publicizing anything from the Maid 
of Cotton finals in Tennessee to a 
fishing rodeo in Florida, generally 
wind up in the nearest waste 
basket. But every once and awhile, 
an envelope is addressed in 
scrawled writing, with the in- 
scription "Letter to the Editor." 

The great collegiate miscon- 
ception about the campus press 
might be that the editor's mailbag 
virtually overflows with 
provocative and controversial 
material to stimulate the cir- 
culation audience. 

So, in order to aid the reader in 
the selection of topics he might 
consider to increase the readibility 
of the Current Sauce, the following 

list has been prepared. Just label 
it: "Everything you've always 
wanted to ask the editor, but, as of 
yet, havent." 

(1) Dear Editor: What's all this 
talk about the library hours being 
extended? There's been some 
discussion that library staff 
members were shaking the shelves 
in disdain with the prospects of 
having to work the late-shift."

understand this furor about the 
Allen & Allen vending service

date has expired or it hasn't ex- 
pired. What's causing all the con-

rumors about the Recreational 
Complex. Will we have a Super- 
dome along with the project, and 
will the whole deal be obsolete by 
the time it is constructed?"

temperance movement is currently

Magic kingdom shaken

Dear Mr. Editor, 

About your little article on 
what an editor does, I am in 
complete agreement. You 
should have the right to play 
GOD and EDIT material 
submitted to YOUR paper in 
the way that YOU think it 
should be written. I mean, you 
are the EDITOR, and just 
because someone wanted his 
writings printed as he wrote 
them, there is no reason you 
should not EDIT, because, as 
an EDITOR, your way of 
writing is ALWAYS RIGHT. 
It's nice to know that this 
beautiful school is helping to 
produce a new Generation of 
PRESS. It is up to them to 
EDIT out anything they don't 
like so that the PRESS OF

in defending the rules of 

Anyone who submits a news 
article into the Current Sauce 
is trusting his work to the 
judgment of that editor. The 
writer should be grateful that 
there is a qualified person to 
correct his grammatical and 
spelling errors, even the best of 
us make them - so the writer 
does not appear the fool in his 
readers' eyes. Sometimes 
editing cannot be avoided 

Cafeteria workers 
urge cooperation 

Dear Editor, 

I appreciate the use of your 
paper to present a letter to all 
students of NSU. I am writing 
as a spokesman for many 

We, the student workers of 
Iberville, SAGA workers, and 
NSU students would greatly 
appreciate it if in the future all 
people would return their 
trays to the belt in the 
Cafeteria. 'All 'refers to full- 
time and part-time students, 
graduates, athletes, and 
visitors. May we remind 
everyone that Iberville is a 
cafeteria-not a restaurant. 
Leaving your trays on the 
table infringes on the rights of 
other students to use that 
table. During a rush hour, 
tables are full, and sitting at a 
dirty one just kills one's ap- 
petite. True, there are student 
workers there, but they do not 
just clean tables. They serve, 
work on the belt, serve ice 
cream, and refill the line. 
They work hard at their jobs 
and cleaning other tables is 
not suppose to be their job. 

irue, sometimes the belt- 
line is long but a few minutes 
can help those who have 
already worked hard for 
hours! Please keep your 
neighbor (whether a fellow 
student or a worker) in mind 
next time you contemplate on 
whether or not to clean your 
own table. 

While on the subject of 
eating, we would also like to 
mention the words 

"courtesy." Whether you are 
in the training room or in the 
main hall, the servers try to 
please each and every one of 
you the best they can. A smile 
or a "thank you" once and 
awhile just makes their day. 

In short, your taking your 
tray to the belt, being kind and 
courteous to the servers, and 
your thoughtf ulness for fellow 
human beings will be greatly 
appreciated by others.

simple because there is not 
enough room for the entire 
length of the original copy. 

No editor is expected to first 
check with the writer to get his 
permission before correcting 
a story. Such a suggestion 
encourages ridicule. The 
editor does not have the time 
to entertain these whims. 

The writer charging the 
Current Sauce editor with 
censorship, as the editorial 
suggests, is evidently ignorant 
of journalistic policies. If he 
stands adamant in believing 
that his story is above editing, 
that writer had best not 
submit another.

(Editor's Note: From the 
contrasting tone of the above 
letters, I apparently stirred up 
at least some interest with last 
week's comments about my 
right to edit material printed 
in the Current Sauce. 

To clarify some confusion 
which has resulted from that 
editorial, allow me to explain 
that the material in question 
was a column entitled "State 
of the Union," written by the 
SUGB President Eddie 
Hebert, not any material 
handed in by the student 
government (as has been 
suggested). The article in 
question was edited by me for 
several reasons, most notably 
because of a lack of space. 

In the "State of the Union" 
column, the most con- 
troversial topic pointed to was 
the description of the overflow 
crowd of students present at 
the recent screening of "Gone 
with the Wind." Therefore, I 
can hardly see where I in- 
fringed on anyone's right to a 
free press. Simply, there was 
just not enough space in the 
paper to print the entire ar- 

As for being a "tin god," 
what can I say? The Land of 
Current Sauce is, after all, a 
very meager kingdom in 
which to reign. But I guess I 
could use just one more court 

organizational charter to offset the 
prospects of beer sold in the Student 

(5) Dear Editor: "I have heard 
that Northwestern is strictly a 
suitcase college -an idea that tome 
is ridiculous. Could you perhaps 
locate, through your publication, a 
student that has remained on 
campus over the weekend to dispel 
this rumor?" 

(6) Dear Editor: "Being a new 
freshman, I am not generally 
acquainted with the procedures 
around Northwestern yet. But a 
friend of mine warned me that the 
moment I entered the Bookstore I 
would be taken for a ride. I missed 
my next class just waiting around. 
Did I misunderstand?" 

(7) Dear Editor: "I am a fresh- 
man here at Northwestern, in- 
volved, interested, and eager to 
uplift and upgrade the level of 
student government on this cam- 

Won't you support me in my bid for 
student office? (and P. S. - Spell the 
name right and IH supply all the

(8) Dear Editor: "What's this 
about faculty members undergoing 
some sort of evaluation? My teacher 
this morning had to wake me up to 
hit me with the news." 

(9) Dear Editor: "What's all this 
talk about censorship? I pick up the 
paper one time and your babbling 
about freedom of the press and 
journalistic privilege and state 
Attorney General Guste's opinion 
on the actual publisher of the paper 
and before I know it, I read you're 
now ruling some mythical kingdom

With the recent weekend sojourn of

Room 125 of West Rapides 
houses NSU's first and only

on a scant one-tenth wattage; 
the transmitter is connected to 
an unused wire in the dor- 
mitory's telephone system. 
The caretakers of this venture 
are Gary Lam pert, Russell

Stuart Smith. 

The station can be picked up 
only by West Rapides 
residents with radios placed 
within 2 feet of their

A group headed by Price has 
been working for the 
establishment of a radio

plan to ask the support of the

Tee-shirted publicity has 
begun for KNSU-FM. 
Morrison is producing silk- 
screened tee-shirts with 
"Radio FM" emblazoned as 
promotion for the project 
which has as its earliest 
possible broadcast date, 
February of 1974. 

A J 4700 grant for audio 
equipment would be covered 
in this assessment . The money 
would be used to build 13 
transmitters at about $30 
each, one to be placed in each 
dormitory. Monthly fees for 
telephone wire rental, printing 
publicity, maintenance and 
license application fees are 
other expenses involved. 

The Industrial Engineering 
Dept. has agreed to give the 
proposed radio station 9.36 

square feet of studio space in 
Russell Library to ac- 
comodate offices and studios 
free of charge of rental. Partly 
responsible in this effort is the 
station's moderator, Dr. Stan 
Chadick, assistant professor 
of mathematics. 

Proposed publicity director 
for the station, Stuart Smith, 
would introduce bi-monthly 
surveys to determine music 
preferences and opinions of 
the station's audience. From 
the survey, the station will be 
able to tailor their music 
program to student demands.

goal is to establish KNSU-FM 
yet still operate AM. The FM 
proposal must be approved by 
the State Board of Education. 

A construction permit 
covering 18 months and a two- 
year wait for a license must 
also be honored. If FM 
becomes a reality, broadcasts 
will carry for a 10-mile radius 
encompassing Natchitoches. 

KNSU-FM will be owned 
and operated by students for 
students without any class's 
control, Price said. The cir- 
culating rumor that FM radio, 
if a reality, would become a 
classroom instrument, 
Michael Price refuted, "Oh 
no. No way. We might give 
special consideration to 
broadcast journalism, radio 
and TV broadcast or speech 
majors as far as working at 
the station, but only on an 
individual basis and not on a 
departmental level."

Injuries do NSU 

pcoeocoooooooeocooooocoo oooooooooooooc 

Tribe scalps Demons, 16-13 

By Dan McDonald 
Sauce Sports Editor 
Every Demon fan was wondering when all 
of the injuries, especially those in the 
defensive line, would take an effect on the 
success of the Northwestern State team. 

Well, they took effect last Saturday night 
in Demon Stadium. 

Northeast Louisiana's running tandem of 
Joe Mitchell and Matthew Williams kept the 
pressure on the battered Demon line, and it 
paid off as the Indians escaped with a come- 
from-behind 16-13 victory, pinning the 
Demons with their first defeat in four 
outings this season. 

DEMON STOPPERS — Don Mc Allen (5 showing) and Mike Doherty 

(on ground) put the clamps on Northeast running back Joe Mitchell 
during last Saturday's action. Jarvis Blinks (45) and Frederick Wiley 
(51) move in to help out. 

Demons tackle Nicholls 

By Philip Timothy 
Last season Nicholls State 
began its first year of varsity 
competition and made a fairly 
respectable showing. Gary 
Kinchen took over as head 
football coach at Nicholls and 
tried to prepare his team for 
the 1971 season. Without even 
a single senior and only seven 
juniors, Kinchen did a pretty 
good job as he led his team to a 
3-6 record. But the Colonels 
were playing against teams 
that held an edge over them. 
The edge was naturally that of 
experience. But this year the 
Colonels have talent as well as 

At the beginning of the 
season, Kinchen was happy 
with the amount of experience 
his team has. "We have 
playing experience at every 
position this season. We will 
have a quarterback that has 
been under fire, as well as an 
offensive line that can protect 
him. Defensively we will also 
have experience at every 
position. I think this ex- 
perience should bring added 

The Colonel'soffensive team 
has had some difficulty get- 
ting on the move this season. 
But there are a couple of 
standouts for the Colonels that 
Kinchen hopes will help his 
offense get rolling. They are 
quarterback Gary Barbara 
and tailback Ronald Joseph. 

Along with Joseph in the 
Colonel backfield, is fullback 
Ricky Lovell. 

So far the Colonels have not 
been able to get their offense 
or defense moving, even 
though they do have ex- 
perience on both offense and 
defense. They have been 
unable to get themselves 
together. This is the first 
game between Nicholls State 
and NSU. The Colonels 

still a young team. It looks like 
they will have bitten off more 
than they can chew when they 
play the Demons. 

The balmed and bandaged 
crew could not cope with the 
double-barrel punch of a 
powerful set of backs and an 
offensive line that out- 
weighed the NSU front by 29 
pounds a man. The Indians 
rolled up 285 yards on the 
ground, over 200 coming from 
the Mitchell-Williams 

The defense was not totally 
responsible, though, as the 
offense could only muster 101 
yards on the ground and 200 
in total offense. 

In fact, the only sustained 
drive the Demons could 
muster was on their very first 
possession. After taking the 
opening kickoff, quarterback 
Wilton Cox came out throwing 
and found tight end Dennis 
Smith twice to move it all the 
way to the NLU 17. From 
there it was Mario Cage 
carrying three times, 
finally hitting paydirt on the 
third from one yard out. 
Randy Walker's point was 

Northwestern had plenty of 
chances to score again in the 
opening period, when they 
recovered three Indian 
fumbles, all three in NLU 
territory. But those chances 
were quickly gone on an 
interception, a fourth-down 
punt, and a partially-blocked 
field goal attempt by Walker. 

It was at this time that 
Sidney Thornton decided to 
take matters into his own 
hands. He gathered in an 

Indian punt at his own 37, 
evaded one man there, and 
took off up the middle 63 
yards to make it 13-0. 

A fumble gave NLU 
possession on the NSU 35. A 
28-yard strike from Scotty 
Dyer to Tommy Arnold put 
it at the seven, and Williams 
tallied after two plays from 
one yard out. The attempt for 

conversion was wide. 

On the ensuing kickoff, 
Cage lost the handle, and the 
Tribe recovered, apparently 
headed for another score. 
But the Demon defense rose 
to the occasion, holding for 
four downs inside their own 

Northeast took the second- 
half kickoff and drove for their 
second tally in just five 
plays. After two pass com- 
pletions took it to NSU's 30, 
Dyer handed off to Mitchell, 
who pitched back to Dyer 
when hit. It was an obvious 
forward lateral, witnessed by 
everyone. Oh, yes, everyone 
but the officials. The play 
carried to the NSU four, 
where Mitchell crashed across 
to knot the score. 
On their next possession, the 

Indians went on a powerful 
drive of 90 yards that was 
halted at the Demon 3. Alain 
Gossein side-saddled a 20-yard 

field goal from there for the 
eventual winning points. 

NSU threatened several 
other times, but could not put 
anything on the board to 
offset the difference.

For the past few years Demon athletic officials have been trying to

With the recent announcement that the National Association of 

Intercollegiate Athletics will hold its 1973 championship game in

The National Association of 
Intercollegiate Athletics 
announced Thursday that the 
NAIA 1973 National Cham- 
pionship Football Game will 
be played in Shreveport 's 
State Fair Stadium on Dec. 8. 

NAIA officials entered into a 
three-year contract with the 
City of Shreveport to use State 
Fair Stadium for the cham- 
pionships, which will be 
played annually on the second 
Saturday of December. 

Making the announcement 
in a press conference at City 
Hall Thursday were A. O. 
Duer, executive secretary of 
the NAIA, and Shreveport 
Mayor Calhoun Allen. 

Others partricipating in the 
press conference were Dr. 
Paul Pierce, president of the 
NAIA from Sul Ross (Alpine , 
Tex.), Northwestern State 
University president Dr. 
Arnold Kilpatrick, first vice 
president of the NAIA; Mel

Colonel star 

After the season opener in 
which Nicholls won, Kinchen 
announced that Barbaro 
would be his starting quar- 
terback for the rest of the 
season. Barbaro is a 6-4, 190- 
pound sophomore whose 40- 
yard sweep in the fourth 
quarter against the University 
of Tennessee-Martin won the 
game for Nicholls. Barbaro 
has completed only eight of 28 
attempted passes for 109 
yards, and rushed for 99 yards 
in 29 carries for a 3.4 rushing 

Backing up Barbaro will be 
Ronald Joseph at tailback. 
Joseph led all Colonel rushers 
last year and is doing so again 
this year. He is regarded as a 
powerful inside runner, but 
has the speed to turn the 
corners and break up the field 
on the option. He is also a good 
pass receiver. Joseph has a 
4.4-yard rushing average. 

Soft-spoken John Kelly 
would never admit it, but he 
wanted to play football for 
Northeast Louisiana 
University when he graduated 
from Monroe's St. Frederick 
High School. 

However, Kelly wasn't 
offered a scholarship at 
Northeast -or at other colleges 
for that matter. 

Instead, the well-built 5-foot- 
8, 165-pounder walked on 
Northwestern State 
University's practice field 
four years ago and said, "I 
want to play football." 

Since that time, Kelly has 
turned into one of the state's 
best defensive backs, earning 
All-Louisiana honors in 1972 
when he led the Gulf South 
Conference with seven pass 
interceptions from his safety 

"IH never regret coming to 
Northwestern," Kelly said. "I 
was playing split end my first 
year so the coaches moved me 
to the defensive backfield and 
I've been starting ever 

'"I grew up in the same 
neighborhood with Matthew 
Williams (Northeast 
fullback)," Kelly said. "He's 
always been a big, strong and 
fast back." 

Another one of Kelly's 
buddies is split receiver Larry 
Gene. "He's another good 
one," Kelly said of his 
counterpart. "Larry has the 
great speed." 

Kelly, a 3.0 student in 
business at NSU, has a lot of 
pride on and off the field. 

"John Kelly is one of the 
finest individuals I've ever 
known," says NSU defensive 
coordinator Gene Knecht. 

"The pleasure has been Kelly is something a coach 
mine... working with John enjoys." 

NAIA; Grambling President 
Dr. Ralph Jones; and Nor- 
thwestern Coach George 

Since 1966 the NAIA 
championship game has been 
played at or near the home of 
one of the participating teams. 
But Duer said the NAIA 
"favors a permanent neutral 
site and we are delighted that 
Shreveport has agreed to host 
the championships." 

The NAIA has some 565 
member schools in the 50 
states and Canada. 

In last week's NAIA 
national rankings, Grambling 
was rated as the No. 1 team in 
the nation and Northwestern 
was in the second spot. Both 
teams are undefeated in three 
games this year. 

McGaha said the Shreveport 
Sports Foundation and Lions 
clubs throughout the Nor- 
thwest Louisiana area will 
participate in the promotion of 

the championship game in 

State Fair Stadium is 
currently being enlarged from 
30,000 to 45,000 seats and city 
officials have begun a con- 
centrated campaign to bring 
major new football attractions 
to Shreveport. 

McGaha said the State Fair 
Stadium's East side will be 
completed in the next few 
days. The entire stadium 
renovation will be completed 
prior to the opening of the 1974 
football season. 

In announcing the signing of 
the contract with the NAIA, 
Mayor Allen said, "We in 
Shreveport are fortunate to 
have the opportunity to host a 
national championship 
football game and we look 
forward to a long and suc- 
cessful relationship with of- 
ficials of the NAIA and the 
NAIA Champion Bowl 
Football game."

The students who live in 
Natchitoches, Varnado, and 
Caspari Halls feel as strongly 
about the success of the 
dorms as does Schwartz. A 
consensus showed that the 
majority of students like 
living in the environment of 
the coed dorm better than in 
the regular type dorm. Both 
sexes agree that it is much 
easier to study in the rooms 
because there is not as much 
noise and disturbances outside 
in the hall. 

As far as the social aspect 
of the dorms, both the men 
and women feel that it is 
much easier to meet their 
opposites when they live in the 
same place and share the 
same lobby and recreational 

Considering that it cost 
absolutely no money to change

Representing the Orient is 
Hay- Yip-Lam, from Hong

fluently with only a trace of 
Chinese accent. Lam has been 
an NSU student for one and a 
half years, and the only 
Americans he knows are those 
in Natchitoches-in his words, 
"nice people." 

Lam described his people's 
customs as exactly different 
from those of Americans. 

Students interested 
in publicizing campus 
events should contact 
the Current Sauce 
office, phone 5456. 

American movies, he says, 
are quite popular. (Why don't 
we get to see Chinese 
movies?) "In my country," 
he said, "everyone has heard 
of USC, UCLA, and LSU, but 
not of NSU." He resolved that 
NSU should strive to make 
itself better known. 

The foreign exchange 
program offers a chance for 
exchange of ideas as well as 
the obvious purpose of formal 
classroom education. But 
more than this, it offers a 
chance for people to bridge the 
gaps between them. When you 
get down to it, people basically 
are the same and mileage 
doesn't really matter.

Movie Notes 

At the Cane 

"The Dead Are Alive" and "The Flesh and 
Blood Show" form a horrow double-bill at the 

Cane Theatre Oct. 4-6. Scheduled to run Oct. 7- 
10 at the Cane is a Burt Reynolds flick, "The Man 
Who Loved Cat Dancing." 

At the Don 

Starting tomorrow at the Don is "Sounder," an 
award-winning movie filmed in southern 
Louisiana. Starring Cicely Tyson and Paul 
Winnfield, "Sounder" centers around the plight 
of an impoverished family of black sharecroppers 
during the Depression. The story tells of simple 
joys and sadnesses, quiet courage and the 
desperation of the poverty-stricken. 

At the Chief 

The Chief Drive In's Tuesday night double 
feature is "The Man Handlers" and "Night of the 
Cobra Woman." Scheduled for Wednesday and 
Thursday is "Lady Sings the Blues" with Diana 
Ross as songstress Billie Holiday and "Riot" 
with Jim Brown and Gene Hackman. 

Friday and Saturday nights' features are "The 
Daring Dobermans" and "Bonnie's Kids." 

With the leadership of 
people like Ramsey Muniz, 
maybe Texas politics is 
headed for better days. And 
maybe his Mexican American 
people, a group which is ex- 
pected to reach a nation-wide 
figure of close to 50 million in a 
few years, are headed for even 
better and brighter days as 

Appearing here last Monday 
night as the first speaker of 
the semester's Distinguished 
Lecturer Series, Muniz is a 
Corpus Christi, Texas at- 
torney who is one of the 
founders of the La Raza Unida 
(The United Race) party in 
Texas. La Raza Unida was 
originated in Crystal City, 
Texas in 1970 to represent the 
interests of the Mexican 
American, long a target of 
political exploitation and 
prejudice in Texas. 

"We have constructed a 
system to meet the needs of 
the people," said Muniz in his 
first speaking appearance in 
Louisiana. He added that the 
La Raza Unida party does not 
represent merely the Mexican 
Americans, but also other 
minority groups. "Our party 
is open for anyone. When we 
talk about the La Raza Unida 
party, we are not only talking 
for Mexican Americans, the 
Blacks and Chicano, but for 

"We know how it feels to be 
the last hired and first fired 
and we don't want to practice 
discrimination on another 
race," he said. Muniz com- 
mented that racism is 
something that adults instill in 
children, thus the elimination 
of racism must necessarily 
begin with children. 

Crystal City 

Crystal City, with a 

population of 10,000, 85 percent 
of which are Mexican 
American, was politically 
turned upside down three years 
ago when La Raza Unida 
candidates won 15 of 16 local 
governmental offices. Prior to 
this time, according to Muniz, 
"The only Chicanos in city hall 
were those who went to pay 
their water bills." La Raza 
Unida began to change things 
by first conducting a massive 
voter registration campaign 
aimed at the Mexican 
majority in the city. Then the 
entire community of Mexican 
Americans united and went to 
the polls for the first time as a 

"When we won," Muniz 
said, "the Democrats and the 
Republicans within the state 
accused us of trying to take 
over. They call ed us Com- 
munist-oriented. Why 
shouldn't 80 percent of the 
people be taking over against 
the 20 percent that has been 
running the city for many 
years? The racists and bigots 
in Texas didn't like it. 

"Changing the political 
system means changing the 
first to last and the last to 
first. That's what happened in 
Crystal City," he added. 

Claiming that the 
Democratic party in Texas has 
never done anything toward 
helping the Mexican 
American population in the 
state, Muniz said, "We have 
waited many years for the 
Democrats to give us 
something. After they refused 
to give us what we asked, we 
decided to take it politically. 
We are finally practicing 
democracy as it has been 
taught to us. 

People Power 
"It was a terrific feeling 

And Wrangler is doing 
something about it 



when money didn't have the 
power in the elections in 
Crystal City," the Texas 
leader said. "It is going to 
take people power to get 
people to notice the problems 
of the Mexican American 

Muniz represented the La 
Raza Unida party on a state 
wide basis in the 1972 
gubernatorial race in Texas, 
in the party's first stab at the 
Texas governorship. The 
campaign was run on $10,000 
in contributions from poor 
people. The party polled a 
total of 255,000 votes for seven 
percent of votes cast. 

"We didn't have DuPont 
contributing to our cam- 
paign," he said. "The biggest 
donation we received was $100 
and I think the man who gave 
that was drunk. We were 
talking about people power 
when we got that many votes 
on such little campaigns." 
Muniz will again seek the top 
Texas position in 1974. 

In an interview preceding 
his speech Muniz commented 
on the racial segregation of 
whites and Mexicans in Texas. 

"We have towns where you 
can drive right through and 
see it divided into Mexican 
Americans on the left and 
'others' on the right. This kind 
of segregation has existed for 
years." He cited a lack of 
power as the cause for the lack 
of respect given the Mexican 
American. "Power respects 
power." he said 

Muniz forsees great change, 
as well as prominence for the 
La Raza party in the future. 
"We have been deceived by 
the United State govern- 
ment," he observed. But he 
predicts, "There will be a 

move toward Mexican 
Americans in the near future. 
We know that one day we will 
become the balance of 

Football Star 

Muniz is a graduate of Roy 
Miller High School in Corpus 
Christi and Baylor University, 

where he was a star halfback 
on the schools' football teams. 
His appearance at Nor- 
thwestern was largely a result 
of his association with NSU 
student Ronnie Herrera, 
whose father once coached 
Muniz in Corpus Christi.

NSU Greeks make progress 
in improving housing situation

from a few rooms in the 
basement of Caldwell Hall to 
off -campus live-in houses — 
this is the progress made by 
the Greeks on the NSU 

Through adverse conditions, 
the meager number of those 
called Greeks met in any out 
of the way spot to be the 
foundations of the nationally 
affiliated chapters. 

Until 1966 no one place could 
be designated as "Greek 
territory." The sororities 
began their life at NSU back 
in the days of Normal when 
Sigma Sigma Sigma and 
Alpha Gamma Delta held 
their meetings in the 
basement rooms of Caldwell 

The "green shack" situated 
behind the present Rapides 
Hall was the home for the few 

The meeting places for 
most Greek organizations 
were moved from place to 
place around campus. Tri 
Sigma, Sigma Kappa and 
Alpha Sigma Alpha, 
however, maintained per- 
manent quarters in houses 
located on the site of the 
present Student Union 
parking lot. 

When the plans for the 
Student Union were made and 

a site selected in 1965, 
change was inevitable for the 
sorority houses located on the 
proposed site. As a result, the 

Alpha Sigma Alpha house 
and the Sigma Kappa house 
were moved to a hill close to 
Caddo Hall. An access road 
was built and sororities and 
fraternities were to follow 

their house on the hill to Phi 
Mu and moved off campus in 
1969 to become the leader in 
such activity. They purchased 
a house on Pine Street arid 
maintain a live-in fraternity 
house there.

Kappa Alpha Order was the 
first fraternity to take up

The last fraternity to move 
off campus and establish 
residency was Kappa Alpha.

house also on Second Street.

END OF HILL — These fraternity and sorority houses at the base of 
Greek hill are the scene of many activities for campus Greeks. Greek 
hill was selected as the home for Greek lodges in 1965 after the site for 
the Student Union was chosen. Prior to moving to Greek hill, most 
fraternity and sorority houses were in the present day Student Union 
parking lot.

Union schedules 
campus seminar 

The Student Union 
Governing Board announces 
the initiation of the first 
motivational leadership 
seminar for college students 
on the NSU campus. This 
seminar, the first of its kind 
ever attempted at Nor- 
thwestern, is scheduled for 
Oct. 13 in the Student Union 
at 8:30 a. m. and will run 
through 4:30 p. m. 

According to Eddie Hebert, 
coordinator of the program 
and president, of the SUGB, 
the Governing Board has 
taken an entirely new ap- 
proach to conducting a 
leadership conference. A 
great deal of intensive 
research has gone into the 
formation of this program to 
make it as exciting and 
emotionally stimulating as 

Unlike most leadership 

conferences which schedule 
one speaker after another, the 

motivational leadership 
seminar will include a 
leadership self-evaluation 
analysis. Hie evaluation is 
achieved through interaction 
with others in a small group 
type environment. 

Hie purpose of the seminar 
is to promore a better un- 
derstanding of the qualities of 
leadership. More efficient 
leaders lead to more efficient 

Letters have been sent out to

Upcoming budget proposed 
by NSU's Governing Board 

The Union Board has drawn up a proposed 
budget for the fall semester. It is based on an 
enrollment of 4773 students, each paying a 
Student Union Association fee of $9.25. This 
is merely a tentative budget. The official 
budget cannot be determined until a com- 
plete student head count is issued. 

The largest bulk of the Student Union 
funds goes into the Student Union Program 

Budget which is divided into 10 areas. 
Showcase '73 encompasses approximately 
$12,260 with a $5,100 allotment to social ac- 
tivities to cover the cost of 5 dances and a 
rock concert. Appropriations for the other , 
eight areas are Beauty Bageant Comm. 
($1860), Decorations ($610), General Office 
Expense ($896.71), Hospitality ($115), Music 
and Films ($1371), Publicity ($405), 
Scholarships for the Union Board Officers 
($1786.50) and the Travel and Conference 
Expense $900). 

The entire SU Program Budget, including 
a carryover from last summer amounting to 
$2062.07, totals $33,086.57. 

The Research and Development Com- 

mittee now working on the construction of the 
student recreational complex, is functioning 
within a proposed $30,534.75 budget. 

One dollar per student is designated for the 
Drama budget which is now working with an 
estimated $8471.24 including a $3698.24 
summer carryover. 

The total budget to be administered by the 
Governing Board lies roughly around 
$72,092.56, subject to change. 

Within the main budget each committee of 
the Governing Board submits a budget for 
their committee which they feel is necessary 
to carry out their proposed plans for the 
semester. Each committee must stay within 
its own budget. All income made by any 
committee will be in a Revenue Earned 
Account. Committee budgets must be ap- 
proved by the Governing Board. 

This proposed budget is in no way the final 
allot tment of funds the Board will be func- 
tioning under. Lack of sufficient statistical 
information has delayed the issuance of the 
finalized budget. 

Michael Beauford, senior 
electronics major has

Other dorms not in use will be 
renovated. North Hall will be used by 
ROTC, South Hall will become a dorm

"I believe in growing, growing all the 
time," was how Jim Croce described 
his life. The quote is now inscribed on a 
plaque in the Student Union in memory 
of his last performance given to 2,000 
Northwestern students before his 
troupe of six were killed in a plane 
crash here. 

The plaque was presented by Doug 
Nichols, Union Board entertainment 
chairman, to Union Director Robert 
Wilson during a memorial service last 

Dr. C. B. Ellis, assistant to the NSU 
president, talked briefly on the folk- 
rock singer, his beliefs and his life 
which was reflected in his songs. 

Wilson commented that the purpose 
of the memorial service, attended by 
about 150 students, was to honor the 
entertainers and as an expression of 
the students' feelings. The families of 
the six men will also be notified that the 
memorial has been established. 
The service ended with taps. • 
The plaque reads: "in memory of 
the Jim Croce Show. Jim Croce and the 
members of his show were killed in a 
plane crash following his last per- 
formance at Northwestern State 
University on Sept. 20, 1973." The quote 
from Croce follows and the names of 
the six men killed: Croce, Maurice 
Muehleissen, George Stevens, 
Dominick Cortese, Robert Newton, and 
Dennis Rast. 

Phone problems 
still to be settled 

A pay phone has been installed in the 
library after several delays, and at the 
present time no more phones have been 
ordered, according to Librarian Donald 

According to Rodney Harrington, 
vice president of the SBA, he was told 
by South Central Bell the six-month 
delay was due to the special green 
color of the phones that had been or- 

"ft was my understanding when I 
checked on this at the beginning of the 
summer, that it was phones," 
Harrington said emphasizing the 

The one phone now installed in the 
lobby is black. 

Space and hook-ups are available for 
additional pay phones, MacKenzie said. 

Another addition to the library to be 
constructed is a photography lab. The 
supplementary contract for the lab was 
awarded to Breedlove Co., Inc. of 

Other added improvements will be a 
security system for the protection of 
books, bike racks and a drive-in book 
return with a capacity of 300 books. 

A marathon of musical en- 
tertainment, designed to touch the 
chords of each individual's musical 
tastes, will be offered this Sunday and 

A four-group five-hour outdoor 
concert is scheduled for Sunday af- 
ternoon, to be followed by the Paul 
Winter Consort Tuesday evening. Both 
events are sponsored by the Student 
Union Governing Board and are free to 
students with I. D.'s. Tickets for others 
are $2. 

Beginning at 1 : 30 p . m . Sunday at the 
practice field by the Coliseum, the 
concert will open with Larry Raspberry 
and High Steppers, a group from 
Memphis, Term., playing a variety of 
old-time rock and roll. Raspberry was 
previously the lead singer with the 
Gentrys, producers of the million 
selling "Keep on Dancing." 

Earth , the best of two groups familiar 
to this area, make up the second act in 
the outdoor concert. Earth was formed 
from Katmandu and Everbody's 
Pillow, both of which have played at 
Northwestern numerous times. 

Shadowfax and Magpie are the other 
two groups in the afternoon session. 
Shadowfax is a three-piece group from 
Arkansas with an Emerson, Lake and 
Palmer type of act. Magpie puts 
together a combination of rock and 
country music. 

Tuesday at 8 p.m. in the Fine Arts 
Auditorium, Paul Winter and his group 
of five musicians will present a con- 
sort. Defined by Winter, a consort is 
"any group getting it together and 
making their own music." 

Veterans of such appearances as the 
Woodstock Festival and the White 
House, the group has a vibrant flowing 
performance that has hastened the 
return of the instrumentalist. 

Using over 11 varieties of in- 
struments ranging from the saxophone 
to the harp to the African Amadinda 


Xylophone, they switch smoothly from 
jazz to classical to folk to rock. 

The audience is provided with a total 
environment: a stage setting with 
banners, tapestries and costumes; 
special lighting and a $15,000 sound 
system incorporating a ten-channel 
mixing console. 

fcAKTH — One of the groups featured at the outdoor concert 
Sunday will be Earth, the group formed from members of the 
now dissolved Katmandu and Everybody's Pillow groups.

bership open to all schools in the state, 
but this will be the first year NSU will 
officially be a member. Previously, a 

fee was required by each member 
school and although the money was 
appropriated by the SBA last year it 
was never actually paid. New rules 
require only a declaration of affiliation 
by the member. 

One of the projects of the LSA this 
year is to further the establishment of a 
Superboard by the Constitutional 
Convention so that state universities 
will receive more equitable distribution 
of funds. 

Fair court elected 

Northwestern 's first black State Fair 
Court queen was elected last Wed- 
nesday when Betty Coutee was 
declared winner over 20 other 

Other court members elected are 
Roberta Reed, Judy Miller, Jane 
Singletary, Margaret Zulick, Jan 
Phillips, Mary Catherine Bounds, Rita 
Kaye Harris and Ann Johnson. 

The court will be presented in pre- 

game ceremonies Oct. 20 before the 
annual Tech-Northwestern game in 
Shreveport. The members of the court 
will also reign over various activities of 
State Fair Week on campus, Oct. 15 
through Oct. 19. 

Additional court nominees were 
Susan Adkins, Vicki Canady, Sharon 
Caudle Lynda Cloud, Janet Griffin, 
Paula Jones, Lisa Lambard, Patty

Road construction affecting NSU 

Road construction in Natchitoches 
Parish, at an all time high, is currently 
centered around the Northwestern 

According to Daniel Bradford, 
project engineer for Natchitoches 
Parish, a four-lane highway is being 
built from Sibley Drive and when 
completed, will stretch for 1.2 miles 
East down La. Hwy. 6. The project, 
estimated to cost about $745,000, is 
scheduled to be completed by Dec. 1. 

When finished, Sibley Drive would 
run directly into Howell St. Two more 
lanes would allow traffic to emerge 
right or left onto Hwy. 6. One of the 
lanes, called an acceleration lane, 
would merge right, cut across a small 
portion of NSU library property and 
intersect with Hwy. 6. 

Bradford labeled it entirely untrue 
that the proposed construction would 
in any way cut off access to the library 

"We have never had any intention of 
doing that," Bradford offered. "Our 
plans call for the acceleration lane to 
shoot directly off Sibley Drive and 
allow traffic to merge onto Highway 6 
with no problem. 

Also scheduled to be installed is a 
traffic light at the intersection of 
Sibley Drive and Hwy. 6. The light 
would have a left turn signal for both 
lanes of traffic. 

Bradford said the project was a little 
behind due to the weather. 

"The project is about 30 percent 
completed with 70 percent of our 
elapsed time for completion gone," 

asserted Bradford. "However," he 
added, "The weather has played a 
major part in our schedule. We have 
had so much bad weather that it is

By Rodney L. Chandler 

Northwestern students are never 
without a friend. 

Since the development of MEXA, a 
student operated "telephone referral- 
listening service," scores of problems 
have been solved which could have 
developed into major crises. 

"The service is run by students from 
all departments including business, 
physical education and behavioral 
sciences," according to the student 
coordinator. (For special reasons 
involving the private matters of 
MEKA, the coordinator shall not be 

The coordinator has stated that Dr. 
Richard Galloway has been "the 
greatest" in helping to make the 
program a success. Other faculty and 
staff members contributing to the 
success of MEKA are Dr. M. LaVelle 
Nutt and Dr. Richard Lovell. 

The purpose of MEKA is three-fold 
according to the coordinator. All types 
of problems are phoned into the office. 

One reason for the existf-Pce of the 
service is "just for general in- 
formation," said tue coordinator. 
Some students call to find out how to 
drop a class or what to do to change a 

A second purpose for the MEKA 

'hotline" is to act as a referral system. 
All kinds of problems come into the 
office. Cases of this type involve 
people wanting special services such as 
a lawyer or medical help. 

The third reason MEKA exists is to be 
there "just to talk to." Some students 
are lonely or need a friend to talk to. 
Tne MEKA staff is trained to listen and 
sympathize with all types of problems. 

Tne MEKA hotline is open from 8-12 
p. m. seven days a week. There are at 
least two workers on hand at all times, 
one male and one female. 

Names of persons calling in are never 
written down or mentioned by the 
workers. "The whole operation is 

strictly confidential," stated the 

"Some prank calls come in, but 
everyone gets these," said the coor- 
dinator. Most of the calls are 
legitimate, he said. 

Publicity for the MEKA operation is 
being worked on by the coordinating

to be aired on radio and plan to make 
some commercials for future dates.

CURRENT SAUCE, Tuesday, October 9, 1973 

What happened to. 

• 4 

Just what difference does a year make in the news ? 

Just as the old gambler's adage 
"easy come, easy go" applies to 
many of society's more intangible 
elements, so might this uninhibited 
phrase be directed toward those 
items which make the banner 
headlines on page one this week and 
which disappear into oblivion the 

But can these sometimes 
unresolved news leads once again 
surface to the forefront of the 
readership's attention? -Only when 
someone questions, "Whatever 
happened to...?" And on the 
Northwestern campus, because past 
discussions in print have 
concentrated on the 1972 Labor Day 
Roy Hall robbery, the controversial 
suggestion for the construction of 
campus gates, and the pros and cons 
of reducing the faculty workload, 
just whatever did happen to these 

important newsmakers of only one 
year ago? 

According to Sheriff Sam James of 
the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's 
Department, authorities, including 
the FBI, are still in pursuit of Bill 
Pat Kelly, who was charged with 
simple burglary in connection with 
the $92,000 caper before escaping 
from the parish jail this past 

Sheriff James emphasized that his 
office was still active in the case, 
and that while no new leads had 
developed, he had recently 
journeyed to Houston in connection 
with the Kelly probe. He also added 
that his office was prepared to offer 
a reward for information leading to 
the arrest and conviction of the 
alleged robber. 

When the subject of erecting 
gates at the campus' two major 

entrances was first introduced, 
some students objected with cries of 
incarceration and punitive control. 
But officials pointed to the need for 
protection against property 
vandalism and personal attack. A 
project of the Traffic and Safety 
Committee, the gate proposal 
apparently still has backers ready to 
man the stations if the necessary 
financing can be found. 

According to Dr. Richard 
Galloway, vice president of student 
affairs, the gate concept "hasn't 
been dropped and is still very much 
in the making." But he added that 
the cost of erection of the gates- 
approximately $12,000— has for the 
moment sidetracked the proponents 
of the plan. 

"This would not be a case of 
checking everyone that comes in 
and out of the campus," said Dr. 

Galloway. "It would be simply tJ 
give some extra control to insurJ 
that undesirable incidents do noj 

Much across-the-table discussioj 
last year also zeroed in on thd 
faculty workload, when a faculfr 
committee appointed by Dr. Arnol< 
R. Kilpatrick recommended a fu 
teaching load for nine-month facultjj 
to be 15 "equated" lecture hourd 

Dr. Charles F. Thomas, vi c J

explained that while the 15-hou 
verdict is still in effect, a resear 
committee now has authorization

member's reduced workload to]

One More Idea 

By Ronald Sanchez 

Veterans of the Northwestern campus scene 
who can recall the days when Lynn Killen 
governed as SBA president and when Bessie 
Brock dominated as Current Sauce editor have of 
late asked why this publication lacks some of the 
earmarked highlights prominent in the Brock 
regime. These two products of the early women's 
liberation movement held their respective offices 
through the 1971-72 academic year, and the 
Current Sauce that year was treated to a 
spectacular 22-page Tech Weekend issue, a 16- 
page four-color splash for the Christmas Festival 
issue, and a variety of other journalistic flairs. 

These extras apparently delighted the student 
body — so much so that some still question when 
the Current Sauce will return to this voluminous 
and elaborate production procedure. Maybe its 
about time that I answered their probings. 

While its admittedly awkward to discuss a 
subject so near to home as the Current Sauce, my 
first editorial declared that the word "sacred 
cow" would be obliterated from my vocabulary 
and that I would indicate the campus problems as 
I saw them. And if I can, week after week, lavish 
criticism upon the Student Union Governing 
-Board, campus security and other Northwestern 
groups, I suppose I can rightfully reciprocate and 
point the cannon toward my home ballpark. 

So, barring any unforeseen windfalls of good 
fortune, like the discovery of gold ore under the 
foundations of Warren Easton Hall, it is safe to 
assume that the Current Sauce will not have any 
22-page extravaganzas or 16-page "coloring 
books" anytime in the near future. This is not a 
pessimistic prediction; the Current Sauce, very 
simply, cannot afford the expense. 

In checking the size of this issue, the reader will 
notice that it has six pages. Reasoning behind this 
is not a star-struck obsession on my part to 
alleviate the newsprint shortage now plaguing 
publications around the country, but an economic 
one. I was advised that the printing costs in the 
past weeks were such that a reduction in the size 
of the newspaper was needed to be more in line 
with the advertising volume. 

I have reluctantly agreed to limit the number of 
pages in this issue. I say reluctantly because I 
believe that a 6-page paper, or even a 4-page 
paper, as was suggested, too, is totally inadequate 
for a university such as Northwestern. There 
are just too many organizations, events, 
departments, etc. that want, and deserve, 
news coverage to warrant some type of 

hack-sheet resembling a junior high school 

It should be noted in these financial 
considerations that the Current Sauce agency 
fund is now operating with a negative balance. The 
latest figure on the debt quoted to me was some 
$1700. Only speculation might suggest the reason 
for the incurrence of this debt. But along with this 
E should be noted that as late as the Brock 
administration, the Current Sauce was in the 
business of not only putting out a weekly dollar 
drain, but also underwriting departmental 
functions (Journalism Day and meet the press 
night) and other luxuries. 

As far as I am concerned, this should not have 
taken place. And likewise, neither this Current 
Sauce staff nor this Northwestern student body 
should pay the price for someone else's 
mistakes. From the expenditures, it might be 
assumed that there was at least one time when 
the Current Sauce could operate without the 
creditor hounds breathing down their necks. 

But times come and go. And people come and 
go. And the money has come and it's gone. To 
those organizations, individuals, departments 
etc., who had requested and deserved space in 
this issue but who were necessarily eliminated, I 
can only apologize. 

I was "advised" this week that the newspaper 
advertising must pay for the production costs. 
We have not done this. I have however, 
voluntarily reduced the size of this issue. Quite 
frankly, though, I resent the authoritarian 
- interference. And I'm still left with the nagging 
question as to where all this "advisement" was 
when the murky financial situation was 
developing in the first place. This we all need to 

Behind closed doors 

With the mounting financial responsibilities of modern society being thrust upon Americj 
youth at an earlier and earlier age, with the full force of the women's liberation movei 
calling for a redefinition of the heretofore passive role of the female partner in the man 
agreement, and with college students questioning the spiraling divorce rates which shake 
foundations of man's foremost institution, the immediate dilemma facing the univei 
student of 1973 concerns the reported "death of the American family." 


The status of student relationships is currently undergoing a 
drastic upheaval. 

(Editor's Note: With the SBA weekly meetings in the past few sittings running into direct 
conflict with ABC's Monday Night Football, the Oct. 1 meeting of the student senate was brief 
and business-like. The more important items to come out of the discussion were the approval of 
the organization's 1973-74 budget and a formal declaration of membership in the ls A- SBA

But is our traditional courtship- 
engagement^narriage-family cycle obsolete? 
Have college-age Americans become so 
indoctrinated with the idea that marriage is 
but a useless entrapment to appease society's 
moralists that they now are ready to turn 
their back on the entire system? Are college 
students ready to institute a full-scale 
practice of living together without the 
sanction of matrimonial binds as the answer 
to this marriage-family obituary 

According to a recent survey of student 
opinion conducted by Daniel Yankelovich, 
Inc., the number of students who believe that 
marriage is a dying concept is substantially 
increasing. In 1969, those students doubting 
the validity of the marriage rites stood at 24 
percent, but by April of this year the figures 
had increased to 34 percent. 

Nearly 54 million young men and women, 
born between 1939 and 1955, have now reached 
the prime age for marriage - the 18-to 34- 
year span. And while the number of weddings 
has risen from a whopping 1,523,000 in 1960 to 
an estimated 2,196,000 last year, the 
obliteration of the "till death do us part" 
clause is correspondingly skyrocketing from 
a 1 out of 4 ratio in 1960 to a 1 out of 3 ratio in 
divorce. College students are beginning to 
wonder if they should fall into the same 
divorce-court syndrome that seems to be 
inflicting their parent's generation. 

As a possible remedy to this situation, some 
students have set up housekeeping without 
the benefits of the white wedding dress and 
veil. But some have likewise attacked this as 
little more than a free-weilding exploitation of 
the new "sexual mores" of American society. 

Said anthropologist Margaret Mead, "Girls 
are going to live with the fathers of their 
children — if they can catch them. And on the

them as they have been throughout histi

Charles -Beer was sold on campus to 
students of McNeese State University for the 
first time in the school's history on Thur-

jointly by the Student Union Board and the 
Student Government Association. 

"Everything went smoothly," said Student 
Union Director John Keaton. "Campus 
Security was in charge of checking ID's so

much beer to get." 

Forty cases of canned beer were sold before 
11 -15 p. m. and according to Keaton, another 
10 more cases could have been sold. Canned 
beer was used instead of kegs to avoid 
possible left-over beer.

UNIVERSITY, Hammond - Mike Klein, 
president of the SGA, is trying to establish a

bureaus are being set up at universities 
across the country to act as a problem 
solving agency which would be available to 
help any dissatisfied student. 

"The purpose of a Student Rights Bureau is 
not to 'buck' the administration, to seek out 
scandalous information or to sue the

A sympathetic ear 

Counselors give help 

By Lynda Gass 

A poised young man sat 
behind a desk in a Nor- 
thwestern dormitory milling 
over notes he jotted down at 
the last dorm council meeting. 
The phone rang. With eyes on 
the phone, he paused to ask 
himself, "I wonder what kind 
of crisis needs a solution?" 

He is a graduate assistant 
dorm counselor (majoring in 
Student Personnel Services or 
a related field). He is a par- 
ticipant in a program started 
by Dean Fred Bosarge to aid 
the dorm residents. 

Northwestern is the only 
school in Louisiana that offers 
this type of program. Its 
existence for the past four 
years in the male dorms has 
proved successful. It has been 
in operation for two years in 
the women's dorms. 

The counselors are em- 
ployed in an advisory capacity 
and are in no way involved 
with discipline. They are there 
as sympathetic listeners and 

They make referrrals to the 
free tutoring services offered 
by Blue Key National Honor 
Fraternity and Alpha Lambda 
Delta National Honor Society 
for students experiencing 
academic difficulties. 

Also, at their disposal is a 
list of names and phone 
numbers of qualified per- 
sonnel in medical and 
psychological fields. 

Counselors meet with and 
advise the dorm councils, 
composed of elected resident 

Dorm counselors encourage 
and promote planned ac- 
tivities for the dorm residents. 
Previous projects have in- 
cluded such activities as 
dormitory newspapers, a 
donkey basketball game, and 
an Easter egg hunt for 
retarded children. 

All the four men counselors 
and four women counselors 

are required to spend 14 to 16 
hours a week in the dorm. 
Their office and dormitory 
hours are posted on their 
office doors as well as in 
conspicuous places around the 

Dorm counselor ap- 
pointments are formally made 
in the late summer. They 
arrive on campus a few days 
before the fall term begins to 

attend an extensive workshop. 
They meet twice a day for 
several hours. After classes 
begin, they meet once a week 
to discuss their progress and 
frequently have guest 

During the school year they 
are constantly available to the 
students in person and by

presently serving as coun- 
selors for the fall term. They

Offense goes bad; 
NSU shut off, 3-0 

By Dan McDonald 
Sauce Sports Editor 

Did you ever have one of 
those games when nothing 
seemed to go right? The 
Northwestern State 
University Demons know just 
how you feel. 

The Demons ran into a fired- 
up Nicholls State defense in 
Thibodaux last Saturday, and 
were shut out for the first time 
in a decade, as the Colonels 
captured a 3-0 Gulf South 
Conference victory. 

The NSU squad, whose 
record dropped to 3-2 overall 
and 1-2 within the conference, 
had not been held scoreless 
since the opening game of the 
1963 season, when Stephen F. 
Austin pulled the whitewash 
job 10-0. 

It could have easily been a 
scoreless tie, but a key Demon 
fumble put Nicholls in range, 
and Bully Grissom toed 
through a 28-yard field goal 
with only 6:45 remaining in 
the contest for the eventual 
winning (and only) points. 

Grissom's heroics over- 
shadowed yet another out- 
standing performance by 
Northwestern 's star tailback 
Mario "The Rage" Cage, who 
rambled for 144 yards on 27 
carries. Cage now tallies 572 
yards on the season, putting 
him well within shooting 
distance of Donald Johnson's 
single-season record of 887 

In fact, Cage's 144 yards 
accounted for almost three- 
fourths of the NSU total of- 
fense. The remainder of the 
offensive squad failed to put 
any kind of attack together. 98 
yards in penalties, mostly in 
key situations, hurt the attack, 
but the lack of consistency 
was the major factor. 

It appeared to be a battle of 
the punters for all of the first 
and most of the second half. 
Randy Walker and Nicholls' 

Terry Magee continually put 
their opposition out of range 
with booming spirals, as 
neither team was able to 
penetrate their opponent's 40- 
yard line in the opening half. 
Cage's81 yards in the first half 
was the only bright spot for 
the hometown crew. 

The Demons came to life at 
the start of the second half, as 
Cage and Sidney Thornton 
ripped off big gains of 18 and 
nine yards, sandwiched 
between a key first-down 
pickup by Carol Broussard. 
The drive, however, was 
halted at the Colonel 24, where 
the Demons got stuck with two 
straight 15-yard penalties, 
moving them out of scoring 
range and ending what was to 
be their final threat. 

The battle of punts con- 
tinued to astound the 7,500 
fans • Finally, seven 
minutes into the final period, 
the Demons made the mistake 

that cost them the game. 
Magee sent a high 34-yard 
punt to the NSU 17, where 
Sidney Thornton lost the 
handle. The Colonels came up 
with it, and made it count 
three plays later when 
Grissom performed his field 
goal heroics. 

Coach George Doherty had 
praise for several people on 
the defensive platoon, notably 
noseguard Ken Trahant and 
ends Troy Willis and Mike 
Doherty, but said that the 
offense was just not prepared 
for the stiff resistance 
provided by the surprising 

Coach Gary Kinchen of 
Nicholls State probably ex- 
pressed it best. "All I can say 
is this is the greatest feeling 
in the world. The overall team 
performance was perfect." 
Not as much can be said for 
the performance of the

N. O. Saints: 
It can't get 
any worse. 


COX EVADES RUSH — Quarterback Wilton Cox 

ignores the stiff Nicholls State pass rush and 
aims for a Demon receiver. Cox didn't find his 
target often enough last Saturday, as the 
Colonels upset the Demons 3-0. 

Things are starting to look up for the New 
Orleans Saints, and it's about time. Of course, 
one has to take into consideration from what 
depths things are looking up from. 

I'm sure thoughts of suicide crossed Coach 
John North's mind during his debut as head 
coach, which resulted in a 62-7 pasting by 
Atlanta, a team not recognized by anyone as a 
powerhouse. Technically, they showed 
improvement the next week, but a 40-3 loss, 
to Dallas, is nothing to be thrilled over. 

It's not North's fault, though. No coach of 
any professional sport has ever been in such a 
pathetic situation. He doesn't even have 
anything to look forward to, and now that 
people are starting to doubt his coaching 
ability, he doesn't have any way to defend 

To many fans, the trading of Danny 
Abramowicz was the last straw. The only 
remaining original Saint (and the most 
popular ) had requested the trade, but the few 
loyal New Orleans supporters took it as 
another rap on North. 

tlta Sigma The 

Granted, the Saints have a history for ba< a Sigma 
trades, and North said earlier, "What cajXall team defi 
you trade for if you don't have anything tlpy scores of 15

Florence out to even slate Saturday 

The Mad Predictor 

By Rodney L. Chandler 

Florence State will come to 
Demonl and this Saturday with 
high hopes of evening the 
score with the NSU team in 
wins between the two schools. 
As is stands, Northwestern 
holds a 3-2 edge in the over all 
series, breaking the tie last 
year with a 14-7 win. 

Coach George Doherty has 
warned his Demons that this 
game is not to be considered 
just a "warm-up" for the Tech 
clash coming up in Shreveport 
on the 20th. 

Meanwhile, the lions from 
Alabama are initiating a new 
coach this year, Mickey 
Andrews, a former student of 
Paul "Bear" Bryant. Andrews 
guided the Livingston State 
University Gamecocks, where 
he coached before coming to 
Florence, to a national 

championship two years ago. 

FSU will come into Satur- 
day night's game running the 
"Pro I" type offense guided by 
the powerful running of 
fullback Jerry Mizell. The 
5'11", 190 pound star is only a 
sophomore, but is highly 
lauded by the Lion coaching 

Florence is primarily a 
running team, like the 
Demons, but sometimes 
depends on the short pass. 
Often the option is employed. 

The main worry of Coach 
Andrews is his selection of a 
quarterback. He has a choice 
of three signal callers in 
Roger Ferrell, Bobby Gautney 
and Raymond Weaver. Each 
has performed well but all 
lack consistency in per- 

To sum up the offense An- 

drews says "the success of our 
team this year will depend 
upon finding a quarterback 
for leadership, our tight ends 
and a halfback that can get 

The Lions have a strong 
nucleus on defense centered 
around ends Spry Mitchell and 
Larry Brown. Another strong 
point on defense for the FSU 
team this year will be the 
return of Billy Hargrove at the 
safety position. "If we do have 
a particular strong point this 
year it would have to be in the 
defensive secondary," An- 
drews said. 

Andrews will be depending 
heavily on the new prospects 
signed for a good showing this 
year. He hopes to pick up 
some speed from his freshmen

from its 1972 team which 
suffered through a miserable 
2-9 season. Twelve of the 
returnees will be on offense 
and nine from the defense. 

The Demons will be making 
their first home appearance 
since their 16-13 loss to Nor- 
theast Louisiana. The FSU 
game will also be the next to 

last home game for the North- 
western team. 

The game is a conference 
clash and counts significantly 
in the Demons' quest for a 
second straight Gulf South 
Conference championship. 

Kickoff for the game is 
scheduled for 7:30 pin.

The tie disappeared and the leaders 
emerged in Round 2 of the Current Sauce 
Pickin' Panel. Sports editor Dan McDonald 
carved out a 9-1 week to capture the lead by 
one game over circulation manager Rodney 
Chandler, who vaulted from last to second 
with a similar 9-1 showing. Editor Ronald 
Sanchez had his problems and finished up at 7- 

3, as did guest predictor Eddie Hebert. Those 
two are tied for the cellar spot, two games 
from the lead.

What does the Sportspage have in common 
with Switzerland? 

We will be taking a neutral stand, what else ? 

Believe it or not, some of our best friends go to Louisiana Tech. 
Everybody has got to be some place, right? So the Sportspage. . in one 
huge, noble and humanitarian effort will seize the initiative, will seek to 
promote peace, love and understanding between our goodfriends at 
Northwestern and our equally good friends at that other school. How you 
ask, will we accomplish such lofty goals? We will open our doors, open 
our hearts, and better yet, we'll open our alley and put a live band on the 
roof. How about PECOS STAR? They're the hottest group in Dallas right 
now. As long as we're doing all this why not cut the price of our 
refreshments to 30c. I'd like to use a four letter word starting with B, 
however when I want to use that four letter word I'll substitute the word 

What else can we do? We'll think of something, but for now 2:30 --6:30 
p.m. PECOS STAR will be playing on the roof, you'll be dancing in the 
alley and refreshments will be only 30c. 

We're located at 116 Texas Street, Shreve Square, a mere hop, skip and 
jump from the courthouse, be sure to look us up after the pep rally, you'll 
be glad you did. There's plenty of parking space in the convention center 
parking lot. 

How about a banner contest? We'll have a banner contest and give a free 
refreshment bust to the dorm, fraternity or sorority that designs the most 
clever banner to decorate our alley. Deadline for entries will be October 
18. Don't forget you'll be in competition with yourgood friends from that 
other school. For information on the contest call Syd Cadwell or John 
Mento at 423-7173.

problem does not lie in drugs

Benberg told the group. 

"You must help those with

factors that contribute to the 
habitual use of drugs: the 
absence of close ties with

lack of trust in others, no

Fair queen 

State Fair Stadium. 

The Demons of Coach George 
Doherty come into the game with a 
record of 4-2 after last week's win over 
Florence State. They will be out to 
avenge last year's narrow 20-16 loss to 
the Techsters of Head Coach Maxie 

Saturday night's get-together will 
mark the 38th time that the two teams 
have met in Shreveport. Prior to 1937, 
the two played home-and-home en- 
counters, but the site was moved to its 
present location in an attempt to 
generate more interest. Since then the 
Bulldogs hold a commanding 24-11 lead 
in the series, but the Demons have 
fared better in recent years, having 
won six of the last 15 battles. 

The prized Northwestern-Tech 
banner, nicknamed "The Rag", will 
again go to the winner of the contest. 
The presentation of the emblem was 
first performed in 1949, and since then it 
has hung all too few times in the North- 
western Student Union. 

Student activity in preparation for 
the rival contest began Sunday night 
with a decorating party in Iberville 
Dining Hall with Cafeteria Manager 
John Radcliffe providing the 
refreshments. Monday the patriotic 
Demon supporters gathered at the 

Student Union and marched to 
downtown Natchitoches. 

Today the campus is splashed with 
the reminders of the Purple-and-White 
team of Doherty as the students don the 
university colors. The work of campus 
organizations, sororities and frater- 
nities in designing the signs which 
cover the Northwestern campus will be 
judged today by the State Fair com- 
mittee and prizes awarded the winners. 

Cars plastered with "Go to hell 
Tech" will line up Thursday at 6 p. m. 
for the traditional car parade with 
hopes of revenge for Saturday night 
foremost in mind. Immediately 
following is the pep rally and bonfire 
on the side of Sabine dormitory as a 
mass declaration of the intensive 
competitive spirit. 

To no one's surprise, the annual mock 
trial of the Bulldog will result in a guilty 
verdict and the execution of the 
doomed cur.

An amendment to the proposed SBA 
budget was approved by the senate last 
Monday night allocating another $500 to 
the $500 already appropriated the 
Associated Women Students. 

The Associated Men Students had 
been budgeted $1,000 already, but AWS 
President Mary Lynn Williamson had 
asked for only half the usual amount 
since the organization's fees had been 
increased to $1 by a referendum late 
last spring. 

Sen. Robbie Fowlkes introduced the 
motion reasoning that the girls had 
voted themselves an increased fee on 
the assumption that it would be in 
addition to the usual AWS funds. 

The AMS had a similar fee increase 
election last spring but the measure 
was voted down. Tommy Damico, AMS 
president, pointed out at the meeting 
last week that the men's organization is 
planning to bring the same proposal 
back for a vote soon and if passed, the 
AMS would still have the $1,000 
allocation from the senate while the 
AWS would not. 

Controversy had arisen last year with 
the money appropriated the AWS when 
a bill for $574 for sound equipment 
purchased by the group came before 
the senate. The senate had never ap- 
proved the expenditure before it was 
made and some opponents to the 
practice did not want the payment 

approved. In a close decision, the 
senate voted nine to eight to pay the 

At that time, before the fee increase 
had come up for a vote, Williamson had 
stated, "I'd like to see the AWS dues 
raised by the girls in the dorms because 
the senate can't be counted on to 
recognize the needs of the girls in the 

At last Monday's meeting, she said," 
There was a controversy last year 
between the AWS and the SBA and I'd 
like to delude myself into thinking that 
it no longer exists. I didn't ask for the 
$1,000. It was just that I didn't think the 
$1,000 would pass the senate." 

A change also seems to have taken 
place in the practice of the SBA's 
control over how the money is spent 
once it is allocated. 

Dr. Richard Galloway pointed out 
that it is not usual budgetary practice to 
appropriate money to a body and then 
require that each expenditure be ap- 
proved first. 

Jack Damico, SBA president, then 
stated that the practice would not be 
done this year. According to his in- 
terpretation, blanket approval was 
made by the senate when they ap- 
proved the budget. 

The entire SBA budget consists of 
approximately $42,800.

Roemer to announce vending 
contract directive this week 

The status of the controversial 
vending machine contract for NSU 
seems to be still up in the air in Baton 
Rouge with a final decision expected 
from the Division of Administration 
this week. 

"We had one of our top assistants in 
Natchitoches last Wednesday and 
Thursday," said Commissioner of 
Administration Charles Roemer 
Monday. "They reviewed the contracts 
and talked to a number of people. Our 
only hold up now is time. It just takes 
times to cover these things and we have 
to check with the Attorney General. We 
want to be fair to everybody," he said in 
a telephone interview.

Sen. Paul Foshee of Natchitoches, 
who has figured plainly in discussions 
by university officials and officials of 
the present contract holders of Allen 
and Allen of Winnfield was one, 
Roemer confirmed, but not the only 
one who urged the check. 

Dr. Arnold Kilpatrick, NSU 
president, said last week, "As far as I 
know there is no investigation going 
on. They are simply reviewing the 
contracts and if there needs to be any 
corrections, well make them. " Dr. 
Kilpatrick noted that Northwestern 
was one of the first ones in the state to 
bid on vending contracts. 

"We won't salve it over. Well come 
right out and say what has to be done," 
said Roemer.

Northwestern 's first and only radio 
station was suddenly closed Sept. 27. 

The AM station was operating on a 
one-tenth wattage transmitter con- 
nected to an unused wire in the dor- 
mitory's telephone system and could be 
picked up only by residents of West 
Rapides. To receive the transmission, 
radios had to be placed within two feet 
of the telephone. 

The AM radio station had been in 
operation for several days. Michael 
Price, electronics major and 
originator, said the station was closed 
for three reasons: one, it was an ex- 
periment; two, the Housing Dept. did 
not want anyone tampering with the 
telephone wires; and three, the station 
was receiving too much publicity. 

Price said Bill Schwartz, housing 
director, apparently discovered the 
existence of a dorm station by reading 
an article in the Current Sauce. Price 
said he was questioned concerning the 
hook-up of the radio station's equip- 

"We did not violate any Federal 

Communications Commission (MX) 
laws or cause any interference with any 
radio station." The house director of W. 
Rapides approved the venture, he said. 
"We received good dorm response." 

Price assumed Rapides was getting 
side effects because of the dorm 
station. He said, rooms are checked 
weekly and a few residents were caught 
with electrical appliances. 

Price is coordinating a drive to 
gather support from the SBA for a 
campus station. The group hopes to 
pass a bill in the senate which would 
call for a campus election asking for 
approval of a 50 cent fee assessment to 
students for the establishment of a 
campus radio station. 

"If everything goes through, the 
radio station will be operating by the 
spring semester," Price said. 

Library schedule still on trial 

The extended library hours which 
went into effect last Wednesday are 
only on a trial basis, according to 
Donald MacKenzie, librarian. 

A count is being taken of students in 
different sections of the library during 
the hours from 10:30 pjn. till closing at 
midnight to see if the extension should 
be made permanent, according to 
Rodney Harrington, SBA vice 

In line with the new operating hours, 
MacKenzie noted that the services of 
the reference librarian will not be 
available after 10:30 pjn. but the 
reference rooms will be open . Students 
are also asked to check out any books 

before 11:45 p.m. and internal closing 
will begin at that time. Lights will be 
turned off starting about 11:50 p.m. on 
the third floor. 

The new library hours are: Monday 
through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 12p.m.; 
Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, 
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday 2 pan. to 
12 pjn. 

The change was initiated by the 
student senate and was brought about 
by Dr. Arnold R. Kilpatrick, NSU 
president, and MacKenzie. 

The only change made in the senate 
proposal was a delay in the opening 
time on Saturday morning.

One More Idea 

By Ronald Sanchez 

Those 'little things" in life 
A week or so ago, a friend explained to me that 
while full-scale crusades against campus ills 
might provoke significant comment and 
consideration, those "little things" that often go 
unnoticed and undetected deserve some sort of 
fanfare to achieve an equitable balance. So, with 
major interest now centering on Saturday night's 
encounter with the Louisiana Tech Bulldog s, it 
might be appropriate to sidestep any long-winded 
tirades and to examine instead a few of the 
"little things" that nonetheless warrant more than 
passing attentioa 

The Watson Library hours extension, a move 
instituted through the efforts of SBA president 
Jack Damico and vice president Rodney 
Harrington, has now been officially enacted on a 
trial basis. Damico and Harrington have laid the 
necessary groundwork for the successful 
extension proposal, Dr. Kilpatrick has been more 
than cooperative in seeing that these changes 
were carried out, and now continuation of mis 
late-closing policy depends upon student use of 
the facility. Let's hope this endeavor wasn't in 

Last word from the Division of Administration 

in Baton Rouge on the pending investigation into 
the renewal of the Northwestern vending service 
contract was that head Charles Roemer was 
studying the irregularities and the apparent 
confusion surrounding the matter. Consensus 
holds that politics has now become immersed in 
the controversy-worn issue, with the finger of 
blame extended toward a local state senator. 

A program of evaluation and observation of 
Northwestern faculty members, originally struck 
down by guidelines of the Equal Employment 
Opportunity Commission, is now in the process of 
revision and a new system of evaluation should be 
forthcoming. Certainly every student would 
agree, or at least those students who have been 
inflicted at one time or the other with the 
monotonous, listless instructor lost without his 
age-old set of lecture notes, that this is a 
necessary step forward. 

Housing authorities, in particular Director of 
Housing Bill Schwartz, received a jolt upon 
reading the Current Sauce article a few weeks 
back on the dormitory radio station then in 
operation. According to Schwartz, the page 3 
headline was the first word he had gotten on the 
situation. While KNSU proponents were 
temporarily shut down in their attempts at 
establishing a campus radio station, at least the 
matter proved the Current Sauce could provide 
someone with some new information. 

And because someone recently asked me when I 
was going to say something good about 
something, I might reasonable conclude these 
"little things" aren't so "little" after all. 

The price tag on glory 

It all began back in 1869 when a 
scrappy Rutgers squad defeated, by the 
now unlikely score of six goals to four, 
their New Jersey state rival, Princeton 
University, in the first football gridiron 
clash of collegiate powers. Now some 
104 years later, the allure, what some 
over -dramatically label as the "magic 
and the spectacle," of college football 
continues to swell-so much so that the 
sport each year attracts the national 
television dollar and the gate receipt 
proceeds in ever-increasing volume. 
Somewhere along on its effort to unseat 
baseball as this nation's favorite 
spectator sport, though, college football 
reached maturity. 

Rivalries developed. The Army-Navy 
battle, the UCLA-Southern Cal intercity 
fight for pigskin supremacy, and the 
Ohio State-Michigan bloodletting an- 
nually engender frenetic fan interest. 
Super-stars emerged. Devotion merges 
into idolation for the eleventh-hour 
heroes of the game, and a Y.A. Title, a 
Babe Parilli or a Joe Namath remains 
enshrined in the football consciousness 
of the typical arm-chair quarterback. 
Winning became important. And with 
this growing concern for success on the 
100-yard field expanse, college football 
became "big business." 

LSU, the perennial Southeastern 
Conference powerhouse, and Gram- 
bling, the renowned small college 
contributor to the pro ranks, are the 
only two Louisiana universities where 
footbalLisLjpperated on a near self- 
I. Each year these two 
schools receive national exposure 
through the networks, a sizeable slice of 
the advertising revenue, and a healthy 
box-office take. But the other state 
colleges and universities must 

depend upon State Board of Education- 
underwriting of expense to offset the 
financial burden of the expensive 
athletic programs. Northwestern is one 
of these schools. 

"All state college athletic depart- 
ments operate at a deficit," said North- 
western head football coach and 
athletic director George Doherty. "It is 
impossible to remain in the black with 
the expenditures necessary and the 

By Ronald Sanchez 

available income." Adding that this 
year's State Board of Education ap- 
propriation to the Northwestern 
collegiate athletic program would be 
somewhere around $200,000, Doherty 
commented that this figure each year 
proportionately increases with rises in 
the cost of living, equipment, traveling, 
and the like. 

While gate receipts last year totalled 
some $48,468 in Demonland, and 
student athletic fees tallied an ad- 
ditional $38,000, the Northwestern 
athletic department must look toward 
these State Board contributions as vital 
to its economic survival. The expense of 
fielding varsity teams in seven com- 
petitive areas (besides football, these 
include baseball, basketball, tennis, 
track and field^jymnastics, and golf) 




just cannot be covered without this 
budgetary assistance. 

This year's travel budget for the 
Northwestern athletic program totals 
$31,000 and this year's budgeted 
equipment expenditures amount to 
another $32,000. In addition, there are 
70 full-time athletic scholarships 
awarded to football team players, 20 
stipends to members of the basketball 
team, and an additional 15 grants 
divided among participants in the less- 
publicized sporting events. 

Doherty emphasized that home-game 
paid attendance was one factor in the 
"tight budget" situation, saying that 
"we have been falling short at the gate, 
though I hate to admit it," and "our 
biggest trouble is trying to stretch a 
little money a long way." While he 
admitted that on-the-road football 
encounters do not bring in any surplus 

revenue, Doherty added that this 
Saturday's 59th renewal of the Nor- 
thwestern-Louisiana Tech football 
rivalry depended, to a large extent, on 
financial implications and eventual 

"Our athletic department takes in 
more money at the State Fair game in 
Shreveport than in all our home games 
combined," Doherty continued. The 
north Louisiana classic began in 1907 as 
a home-and -home series, but was later 
designated as the State Fair attraction 
when organizers envisioned the 
potential financial rewards to be 
realized from the association. 

And though some claimants have 
hinted at the possible discontinuation of 
the Northwestern-Louisiana Tech 
series because of the Bulldog's present 
quest for major college status in the 
athletic arena, Doherty indicated this 
assertion false. "Tech officials have 
assured me that this game would 
always be played," the former Demon 
football star stated. "This game is their 
biggest money-maker, too." 

"I believe our program operates on a 
much smaller scale than the other state 
colleges in Louisiana," said Doherty. 
"But I believe that we manage well on 
this budget, and we can certainly 
compete on the field with the best of 

Said Green Bay Packers stalwart 
Vince Lombardi: "Winning isn't 
everything, it's the only thing." And 
while college football 
on a sandlot field in 
expanded into a complex, scientific 
process validating this Lombardi 

And while college football might have 
been originally set up to provide varsity 
competition and student body in- 
volvement, the determined interest 
centering around recruiting wars, 
conference championships, and post 
season invitations has dispelled this 
notion. And while college football might 
have been designed to add a few dollars 
to the academic coffers of the 
universities, the economic inflatkwiar;

Dear Editor, 

It has long been my con- 
tention that the university 
newspaper is the most 
essential component of 
student life on campus. For it 
is through this publication that 
the student is able to receive 
two very important services. 
First he uses the newspaper 
to glean that information 
which he feels is necessary for 
his knowledge of campus life. 
This is very important to the 
majority of intelligent people 
in our university community 
and is justifiable reason for 
including a wide variety of 

Secondly, the newspaper 
acts as an indicator of student 
opinion which the ad- 
ministrative and govern- 
mental bodies of this 
university cannot disregard. 
These bodies, whether of 
administrative, faculty or 
student origin, are very at- 
tuned to the student 
newspaper, for they realize it 
is the pulse of the student 
body. My opinion stated ,11 is 
easy to see my concern over 
last week's editorial. 

Th° thought of our Current 
Sauce being reduced in size 
appalis me. This would be a 
great disservice to the Nor- 
n western student body. I am 
in full agreement with your 
editorial and am quite in- 

terested in your explanation 
of expenditures. Perhaps 
further research of these 
expenditures would be in 
order. The reasoning, policy, 
and implementation of such 
practices should be evaluated 
in the best interest of the 
students. This will allow 
greater operational efficiency 
and thereby, greater service 
to the students. By whose 
authority are these practices 
approved — This we need to 

Jack Damico 
SBA President 

Dear Editor, 

Upon reading last week's 
issue of the Current Sauce, I 
thought that in my haste I had 
dropped one of the sections, 
but upon closer examination, I 
discovered that it was all 
there. All 6 pages! To probe 

into this mystery of the lost 
pages even further, I decided 
to read the editorial, hoping to 

find some clue. Thus I 
discovered that the briefness 
of the issue was caused by so- 
called budgetary problems. I 
would like to take this op- 
portunity to suggest to the 
Current Sauce staff and 
advisor that they review 
their present budget very 
closely. Perhaps you could 
find ways to realign and 

reappropriate existing funds 
in such a way that would be 
beneficial to the enlargement 
and improvement of future 
issues. I feel that this would be 
in the best interest of your 
staff and the general student 
body as well. 

Rodney Harrington 
SBA vice-president 

Dear Editor, 

When I first glanced at your 
paper on Oct. 9, I said to 
myself, "What happened?" 
The paper had been a great 
one for the first few weeks, 
but suddenly the brevity 
ruined the quality of the 

Not only was the amount of 
information considerably less 
in last week's paper, but also 
the advertising seemed to take 
up much more room when 
crammed onto six (or four) 
pages. I can imagine how little 
space will be in this issue, 
what with all the the Tech 
Week ads and information . I 
thought that finally Nor- 
thwestern had a paper which 
adequately reflected the 
campus and its people, and 
which was more than just a 
"poop sheet." It now seems 
that I was wrong, since the 
Current Sauce has returned to 
the prior level of the last 
couple of years.

federal district court in New Orleans, asking 
for removal of impeachment and conviction 
proceedings from his school records. 

According to Nicholls Worth, the campus

damages for "injury to college records, 
damage to character and personal 
humiliation" as well as lost wages. 

Labit was tried and impeached by the SGA

the milk's quality. 

Cows are first washed down

machine. The raw milk is 
pumped into a refrigerated

holds 500 gallons. The next 
step is homogenization and 

During pasteurization the 
milk is brought to the 
necessary 166 degrees in order 
to destroy all bacteria. After 
this the pasteurized milk is 
returned to another cooling 
tank and at about 40 degrees it 
is packaged into the familiar 
cartons used by Saga Foods

"Our basic philosophy here 
at the nursery school is to give 
the college students a better 
understanding of young 
children," Mrs. Thomas said. 
"We want them to see how 
children can grow 
emotionally, physically, 
mentally and socially. They 
observe this through coor-

participation in the nursery 

Mrs. Thomas said that 
because most people will work 
with children at some time in 
their lives, the laboratory 
nursery school is not only a 
research laboratory for 
college students but is also a 
facility where a young child 
can make a needed personal 
contact with an adult. 

And for college students, 
Mrs. Thomas said working at 
the nursery school helps them 
prepare for job opportunities. 
"Many students leave here 
prepared to operate their own 
pre-primary schools," Mrs. 
Thomas said.

features daily in addition to its regularly 
scheduled campus news, according to station 
manager Jackie McGregor. 

"Comedy Spot," a short program by well- 
known comedians such as Bill Cosby or Jerry 
Clower, "Concert Miniature," featuring 
popular classics, a short contemporary poem 
by a well-known poet such as Rod McKuen 
and a short language program alternating 
French, German or Spanish music have been 
added for evening listening. 

Operating at 88.7 mh on the FM dial, KNLU 
features campus news at 5:30, 7 and 10:30 
each night of its Monday through Friday 
broadcast schedule. National and in-

Economic Botany is the title of the course,

the course also covers vegetables, fruits and 
other plants. And since no lab is offered with 
the course, Dr. Warren Dickson, who teaches 
the class, attempts to bring into the class 
examples of the varied uses of plants. 

The meals are quite a change from a 
college student's usual diet of hamburgers

Southeastern students who complained that 
those performers weren't "Big Name" are 
having to eat their words. 

It would appear that they would learn from 
past mistakes, but already such comments as 
"Earl Scruggs, you've got to be kidding ! " can 
be heard across the SLU campus. The point 
is, don't pre-judge the Earl Scruggs Review.

according to Dr. Dana R. 

Sanders, assistant professor 

of Biological Sciences here at 

Dr. Sanders stated that 

three methods are now being 

discussed to rid the lake of the 

aquatic weeds. The methods 

discussed include draining the 

lake, killing the weed with 

chemicals, and putting fish in 

the lake to eat the plants. 

The simplest and least 
expensive method, he said, 
would be to drain the lake and 
pull out the weeds. He added, 
however, that there is always 
the possibility of leaving some 
of the weeds in the lake. 

According to Dr. Sanders, 
certain fish could be placed in

Treating the weeds with 
chemicals is the most ex- 
pensive method. Dr. Sanders 
estimated the cost at $300 per 
acre using chemicals. This 
method is now being used in 
Florida to treat the Hydrilla. 

The weed is considered by 
authorities to be harmful to 
fish life in the lake, as well as 
to the water supply of the city 
of Natchitoches. Sanders has 
predicted that in ap- 
proximately five years, if 
something is not done, the 
weeds could completely 
overrun the lake. Actual work 
to destroy the weeds should 
begin in about two weeks, he 


Sanders has been meeting 
with representatives of the 
Louisiana Wildlife and 
Fisheries Commission along 
with persons from the city

plant is reported to be a 
native of the Middle East.

Demons out to WRECK T 

By Dan McDonald 
Sauce Sports Editor 

Come this Saturday, the 
record book goes out the 

That's because the records 
of the teams or the past 
history of the series means 
nothing when Northwestern 
State University and 
Louisiana Tech meet on the 
football field. 

The 59th renewal of this 
classic series happens Oct. 20 
at State Fair Stadium in 
Shreveport, climaxing a week 
of activities known to NSU 
students as "Tech Week". 
Kickoff for the contest is 7:30 

One of the oldest series still 
competed in Louisiana, the 
results of the slate are slanted § 
heavily in Tech's favor. Since ?J 
1907, when the Bulldogs took a 
43-6 win, LTU has put together 
a 38-16 lead in games won. 
Even since the game moved to 
its present location in 
Shreveport, Tech holds a 24-11 
series edge. 

In recent times, however, 
the Demons have fared much 
better. In the 12 games since 
1960, NSU has emerged vic- 
torious in five of the en- 
counters, the latest a 20-17 win 
in 1970, but the Techsters have 
taken wins back to Ruston in 
each of the past two years, 33- 
21 in 1971 and 20-16 last year, 
on their way to an undefeated 

People around Ruston are 
still spouting adjectives about 
Tech football, after the 
Bulldogs rolled up a perfect 
12-0 record with a squad 
composed almost entirely of 

The 'Dogs return no fewer 
than 17 starters from last 
season's squad, including nine 
returnees on offense and eight 
on defense. Also, 36 lettermen 
grace the deep Tech squad. 

Early in the season, 
however, head coach Marie 

Lam bright expressed his 
thoughts that the Techsters 
are not the polished outfit of 
1972. "It will take better 
execution than we have gotten 
yet on offense to move the ball 
with any consistency this 
season," he commented. 

After a shocking opening 
game defeat at the hands of 
Eastern Michigan, it ap- 
peared that the problems were 
indeed a major concern. 
Similar trends to last season 
are developing, though, and 
the 'Dogs will probably be 

ready for one of their finest 
performances of the year 
Saturday night. 

The key to the Bulldog 
success again centers around 
the quarterback spot where 
Denny Duron returns for his 
senior campaign. Duron had 
never played the position 
before last season, but he rose 
to the occasion and guided 
Tech to its perfect season. 

There were a multitude of 
question marks and doubts 
surrounding Duron heading 
into 1972. "I felt like I could do 

the job, but, still, I had not 
been there before and there is 
no way you can be sure until 
you do it." He was correct in 
his feelings, because he ac- 
complished feats that even 
Terry Bradshaw failed to 

" It was Duron that hit Ail- 
American flanker Roger Carr 
for two touchdowns in last 
year's classic to bring the 
Bulldogs from behind. 

Carr, also returning for his 
senior season, was named to 
the Associated Press and the 

Coaches Association All-A- 
merica teams last season, as 
he led the nation in yards per 
reception (25.5) and led LTU 
in every receiving category. 
Carr gathered in 40 passes for 
1018 yards in 1972. 

The Tech rushing attack is 
as impressive as their aerial 
bombardment. Halfback 
Charles "Quick Six" Mc- 
Daniel is on the verge of 
making a shambles of the 
DogsVecord book as he heads 
into his junior season, having 
already broken career marks 

for most touchdowns and most 
points, and is within shooting 
distance of the all-time 
rushing record. "Quick Six" 
was shut off in last year's Fair 
Game, though, as the Demons 
held him under 50 yards. 

The other two members of 
the starting backfield, half- 
back Glen Berteau and 
fullback Roland Harper, both 
return to complete the four- 
way attack. Berteau ac- 
counted for 569 yards and 68 

points in last season's c 
paign, and Harper picked 
493 yards and had 
average. A power 
Harper lost only two yards

The Demons have a young

of the best Northwestern

NSU Coach George Doherty 
beetobecereMete sewsep 

It's amazing how much one simple little college football game can 
affect people. 

Picture this: two small colleges from small cities meeting to play 
football. No big deal. It happens at least a hundred times every 
weekend. So what makes THIS game so important? 

This game, of course, is this week's annual bloodletting between the 
Demons and the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at State Fair Stadium. Of 
course, the game is important, probably the most important game on ^ 
each team's schedule. But why? ^ 

It has no bearing on the conference races, and it definitely does not ^ 
decide any kind of national championship. So why does everyone at 
Northwestern and Tech, in the cities of Natchitoches and Ruston, and in 
the state in general get so excited over the meeting? 

I guess you have to look at the history of the two teams. This series is 
one of the oldest still competed in the state, stretching all the way back 
to 1907. It moved to State Fair Stadium in 1937, in conjunction with the 
Louisiana State Fair, and has drawn capacity crowds ever since. Even 
this year, with the stadium expansion jumping the number of seats to 
over 45,000, the battle is expected to draw near a capacity crowd. 

One thing is certain: it's impossible to be neutral about this one. 
Either you are an ardent Demon supporter or you are greatly in favor of 
the Bulldogs. Of course, it's rather obvious whom most of the people 
who will read this are supporting. 

And since this is true, I consider it safe to make a few comments on 
the contest. First there's no way to logically predict an outcome. It's 
just that kind of series. 

Second, team records and accomplishments made earlier in the 
season mean absolutely nothing come Saturday night. The aura of the 
game itself always offsets any advantages that any one team could 

Third, the game will be more decided on emotion than on 
preparedness. Football on this level is more emotional than anything 
else, and emotion always rides high at the Fair. 

Finally the game is not going to be a mismatch, again because it's just 
that kind of series. The strongest team does not always win, and the best 
prepared squad does not always emerge victorious. It will be a matter 
of who can "put out" when the time comes. 

And, myself, I think it will be the Demons 
know they are capable, and I know they will 
ready. So, as the bumper stickers say: GO '

opposite White in practice. "I 
won't mention the player by 
name," Doherty said, "but 
Bernard almost annihilated 
one of our best defensive 
players before we could blow 
the whistle in a recent drill." 

White's blocking against 
Bishop College two weeks ago 
was what helped Cage ramble 
fcr 148 yards rushing on 23 
carries. But he also had 
similar games against South- 
western Oklahoma, East 
Texas State, and Northeast. 

" Bernard's improvement 
since last year is most 
gratifying," says offensive 
line Coach John Ropp. "You 
can't believe the explosion he 
has coming off the line. He's 
the quickest lineman we have 
except for Art Donahue 
(center)." Donahue only 
weighs 202 pounds-52 pounds 
less than White. 

As a freshman last season, 
White was one of Ropp's top 
reserves and started at tackle 
against Louisiana Tech and 
Southeastern Louisiana. 
During the spring White was 
moved to guard because of his 
quickness.. ..and he quickly 
earned a starting job. 

"The only problem I had 
moving from tackle to guard 
was pulling from a four point 
stance," White said. "I like 
playing guard... it's a more 
exciting position. I enjoy 
leading the play around end." 

" I try to stay on my feet 
when I'm leading the play 
around end," he offers, 
"because sometimes I'm able 
to get an extra block."

impressive performance in the fifth week. The formchi

Around the state: 

NSU-La. Tech at Shreveport 

— The big one right off the 
bat. A lot of people are talking 
about a mismatch, but 
experience has shown that the 
records can be thrown out on 
this one. This is not wishful 
thinking: DEMONS BY 3!!! 

Kentucky-LSU— The Tigers 
have not lost to a Kentucky 
team since most fans can 
remember. It shouldn't beany 
different this time, even 
though the Wildcats have 
improved. In the Snake Pit, 
its the Tigers by 14. 

Grambling-Jackson state — 
The GMen are about 
recovered from their loss to 
Tennessee State two weeks 
ago. It's a sure bet that they 
will be ready for a 
continuation of this old 
rivalry. Tigers by 18. 

North Carolina-Tulane — 
The Green Wave now has a 
national ranking to protect, 
which is enough reason to pick 
them. They're playing at 
home, too. Tulane by 8. 

USL-Lamar — Nothing 
short of a miracle can help the 
hapless Caiuns. Lamar is 
listed as a major college, but 
they are lacking this year 
also. In a battle of the 
pathetic, Lamar by 3.

Thornton leads way. 27-14 

Tuesday, October 16, 1973, CURRENT SAUCE Page 

By Dan McDonald 
Sauce Sports Editor 
Hey, you folks from Tech. Let me 
give you a hint about next Satur- 
day's game. Don't try to concentrate 
your entire defense on stopping 
Mario "The Rage" Cage, because, if 
you do, Sidney "The Thorn" 
Thornton will ram the ball down 
your throats. 

Just ask Florence State. They 
tried to shadow Cage for most of last 

Saturday's contest, and Sidney 
definitely became a "thorn" in their 
aides, as he led the Northwestern 
State Demons to a 27-14 win over the 
Lions from Florence, Ala. 

Thornton, a freshman sensation 
from Capitol High in Baton Rouge, 
was moved to fullback during 
practice last week in replacement 
of injured Mike Harter, and he 
responded in storybook style. He 
garnered 152 yards on 19 carries and 
■cored twice on runs of one and 36 
yards. He also had one 36-yard 
touchdown run called back. 

The win ended a two-game loss 
streak for the injury riddled 
Demons and upped their season 
date to 4-2 going into the clash with 
Louisiana Tech at State Fair 
Stadium. The victory also evened 
HSU's Gulf South Conference record 
at 2-2. Florence fell to 2-3 overall and 
in the conference. 

It wasn't all Thornton, though, as 
Mario Cage, the Demons' leading 
rusher, provided NSU's first spark 
when he took the opening kickoff 
lack 91 yards to give the Demons 
the lead with only 16 seconds gone. 

The efforts of Thornton and Cage 
were overshadowed only by the 
stellar performance of the officials. 
The men in striped shirts were the 
leading ground gainers of the night, 
as they enforced penalties to the 
tune of 251 yards, 126 against the 
Demons and 125 against FSU. 

The sparse crowd of 6,000 on a 
damp night in Demon Stadium had 
hardly become settled in their seats 
before the Demons had put 13 points 
on the board. "The Rage" took the 
opening kickoff on two hops, bob- 
bled it for a moment, and headed 
across the field for the right sideline. 

He broke a tackle near the 20, 
sidestepped another potential 
tackier at the 30, and ran right in 
front of the NSU bench the 
remaining 70 yards to paydirt. 
Randy Walker's point after made it 

Florence added to their problems 
on the first offensive play following 
the ktcaoff, nbta they fambtad at 

their own 21. Noseguard Ken 
Trahant, making a return from a 
serious knee injury, flopped on the 
loose pigskin there, giving Nor- 
thwestern possession. After 
Thornton carried on first down, 
quarterback Wilton Cox rolled right 
on the option, found a canyon-sized 
hole inside the outside men, and 
waltzed into the end zone untouched 
to make it 13-0. All of 59 seconds had 
ticked off. 

Midway through the second 
quarter, Thornton broke- about 
twenty tackles enroute to an ap- 
parent 65-yard TD run. This one 
back on an offsides penalty,

blasts across for his second touchdown during the Demons' 

27-14 win over Florence State Saturday. Leading interference 
for Thornton are Gene Knecht (18) and Mike Boyce (between 
the two). 

but eight plays later Sidney again 
broke through the Lion defense on a 
scoring jaunt. There were no flags 
on the ground this time, but there 
were several FSU defenders there 
after Thornton ran over them, on his 
way 36 yards to touchdown territory. 
Walker's conversion made it 20-0 at 

Florence took the second half 
kickoff and marched 71 yards for 
their first score of the night. The 
Demons came right back, though, 
and drove from their own 11 to the 
Lion 5, with Thornton and Cage 
doing most of the damage. However, 
Walker's field goal attempt from 
there was blocked, and NSU took a 
shaky 20-7 lead into the final 

NSU drove for an insurance score 
midway through the stanza, starting 
from their own 20 and going eighty 
yards, with the help of a strange 
penalty. After Thornton had once 
again run over folks for 38 yards to 
the FSU 38, substitute quarterback 
Stuart Wright lofted a long bomb to 
Reggie Thompson, another of the 
walking wounded. Thompson and 
defender Robbie Hudson got tangled 
up and Thompson lost his footing. 
Hudson picked off the pass and 
started upfield, but a flag flew 
(about five seconds late) from the 
official for interference. 

Hudson came to a halt and 
proceeded to protest the call by 
leaping up and down and running in 
small circles. Several Demons 

took shots at him, but they were 
blocked out and sidestepped as 
Hudson continued his conversation 
with the ref. After finishing his 
discussion, Hudson headed upfield. 
It all went for naught, however, as 
the ball was returned to NSU, setting 
up Thornton's final one-yard scoring

There are several ways to 
rate a basketball team

referring to last year's record 
is no way to rate the Nor- 
thwestern State squad for this

termen, transfers, an out- 
standing recruiting year and a 
more sensible schedule that 
includes all of the Gulf South 
Conference teams could mean

last year. 

New additions include two 
air force veterans that appear 
to be very promising. Howard 
Hughes, nicknamed "Super

5-foot-9 and will probably

Frank Trammel, one of the 
stars of Northwestern State 
University's outstanding 1972 
cross-country team, continued 
his success streak as he led 
the Demon harriers to a first 
place finish in last week's 
Vicksburg Jaycee Invitational 
Meet held at the national 
cemetery in Vicksburg, Miss. 

Trammel won individual 
honors with a time of 23:51 
over a hilly, five-mile course. 
He led a parade of five Demon 
sophomores who placed 
highly in the event. Leo 
Gatson, who took a second 

place finish two weeks ago in a 
triangular meet with 
Southeastern and Southern 
University, captured the 
fourth spot in this meet with a 
24:14 time. 

Randy Moore was just 
behind in fifth position with a 
24:21 clocking, followed by 
Philip Mc Andrew's seventh 
place finish at 24:59 and John 
Been's 18th place finish in 

The Demons finished with 35 
points to nose out runner-up 
Mississippi College, who 
totaled 38 points. Other teams 

in the four -way meet were Ole 
Miss (63 points) and 
Mississippi State (83 points). 

The Demon team, off to a 
slow start compared to last 
season when they went 
through the regular season 
undefeated and captured the 
Gulf South Conference title, 
now have a season record of 
one first and two second place 

finishes, having finished 
second two weeks ago in the 
triangular to Southeastern 
and gaining a second place 
finish in a 10-team meet three 
weeks ago in their season 
opener at Lake Charles.

organization shows great 
concern over its respective 
house and how it facilitates 
the needs of the members. 

Sigma Kappa is giving then- 
house a real face lift. New 
carpet, lighting fixtures, doors 
and windows are just a start. 
A central heating and cooling 
system is being added while 
carpenters enlarge the 
meeting room by enclosing a 
back porch. 

Pi Kappa Phi wants a 
beautiful lawn and continually 
works to make theirs at- 
tractive. A flag pole is being 
erected soon and new air 
conditioners will keep the boys 

Keeping cool is also im- 
portant to Theta Chi, so new 
air conditioners were recently 
purchased. Anew paint job for 
the outside is planned for the 
near future. 

New doors, carpet and 
curtains are just a start for the 
girls of Phi Mu. Furniture for 
the living room area is being 

bought to join the recently 
purchased dining table and a 
utility house is being built for 
the outside storage. The inside 
storage room will be con- 
verted into an office. Outside, 
plants and shrubs and a new 
paint job will catch the eye. 

Tau Kappa Epsilon started 
at the top with a new ceiling 
and finished with new carpet 
for the floor. New curtains 
and air conditioners will 
improve the inside of the 
house and make the boyi 
more comfortable as they 
watch their new color 
television. The outsidt 
painting will be finished soon. 

Delta Zeta is ecology 
minded and wants to plat 
trees and flowers for the 
benefit of all as they travel up 
the hill. These girls nre 
making general im- 
provements for their mem- 
bers, but because their houat 
is so new, no major im- 
provements are needed. 

Sigma Sigma Sigma will 
soon begin construction on the 
first brick lodge located on 
Greek Hill.

The health food fad: 

Food goes 'au natureV 

TECH WEEK — Slogans don't change, though it's been over half a 
century since that first NSU-Tech confrontation that inspired the 
traditional week of frenzied pre-game activity. 

Tech week dates 
from 1907 custom 

It all started way back in 1907 — the ballyhooed week dreaded by 
some, enthusiastically welcomed by others, but steadfastly traditional 
just the same — Wreck Tech Week, when Demonland readies for the 
annual Northwestern-Louisiana Tech football extravaganza in 
Shreveport. What was that "special week" like a half -century ago? 

During the 1920's NSU 
fcudents were allowed off 
campus during the semester 
mly for special holidays and 
"Tech Saturday." The 
Natchitoches train depot was 
iocated directly across the 
*reet from the front gate of 
lie college at that time, and 
unce few students owned 
ars, Tech Saturday found the 
Bit ire student body trooping 
m* the gate to board the train 
far Shreveport. 

Vendors on the train sold 
jopcorn, peanuts, sandwiches 
nd other goodies, as the 
wrth-bound Demon fans 
revved up the collegiate spirit 
far the night's game with 
vigorous chants and yells. 

Upon arriving in 
Bu-eveport, students swar- 
med from the train and 
trekked to the State Fair 
pounds. The afternoon 
brought a spirited pep rally 
■nd parade in downtown 
Shreveport. A short time 
before the commencement of 

the NSU-Tech match that 
evening the state fair queens 
and courts from each school 
were presented and the bands 

About 15 years ago, one 
Tech Week was followed by a 
march by a disgruntled North- 
western student body on the 
then-President John Kyser's 
home, protesting his refusal to 
declare Monday a holiday to 
celebrate the previous 
Saturday's Demon victory 
over the Bulldog team. Nat- 
chitoches police with fire 
hoses were called in to quiet 
the disturbance, but it was a 
Northwestern football player, 
Charlie Tolar, who finally 
settled the angry group with a 
plea to leave peacefully. 

Several years ago, Wed- 
nesday of Tech Week was 
"trial day" for the notorious 
Tech Bulldog. The rival 
mascot was prosecuted in a 
mocktrialatthe NSU football 
stadium, and was sub- 
sequently found guilty of his 

Miss Sweet Thing 

A "Lady of the Bracelet" 
tageant for guys? Well, sort 
t. . . It's one of the zaniest 
kings that has happened to 
be NSU campus in quite a 
phlle - the "Miss Sweet 
hing Beauty Contest," 
ponsored by AMS and AWS 
ormitory councils. 

Men of all shapes and sizes 
will be putting on make-up, 
tfockings, and other female 
paraphernalia in the hopes 
that they will be chosen as the 
most beautiful "Sweet 
Thing." As in any other 
beauty contest, the men 
be judged on the point! 
beauty, talent, poise and brief 

The contest will be divided 
into two parts, the 
preliminaries and the finals. 
The preliminaries will be held 
during the week of Nov. 5-9 in 
the men's dormitories and the 
finals are set for Nov. 15 in the 
Student Union Ballroom. 

In order for a male student 
to enter the contest he must 
have one or more female 
sponsors who will be his 
coaches in instructing him on 
the different aspects of win- 
ning a beauty contest, such as 
walk, dress and talent. Entry 

Nine girls, chosen from the 
lormitory councils of the co- 
ld dorms will judge the 
November contest. 

In the finals there will be an 
Ktnission charge of 25 cents 
o NSU students. Proceeds 
fill be given to a local charity. 

Plans are that the "Miss 
Sweet Thing" contest will 
become an annual affair so 
that the money can be given to 
a new charity each year. 

The lucky male who is 
judged best-looking in the 
finals will receive a $25 gift 
certificate. Second and third 
place finalists will receive $15 
and $10 respectively. 

All male students wishing to 
enter the contest are asked to 
contact their dormitory 
counselors for more in- 

charges and hanged from a 
goal post. 

When the wretch was taken 
down he was placed in a coffin 
and transported to the 
Student Union lobby. His 
funeral wake lasted until the 
next day when he was 
paraded through Natchitoches . 
and the college campus and 
then burned in effigy. 

Tech Week evolved as the 
years passed, and the events 
and activities of the feverish 
week have altered slightly 
from year to year. In the good 
old days when tickets to the 
NSU-Tech game sold for $1 in 
the Student Union, Wreck 
Tech Week began with an 
official proclamation 
designating it so by the 
mayor of Shreveport. The 
State Fair queens and student 
body presidents of both North- 
western and Louisiana Tech 
were hosted on television 
programs on various stations 
in the state. 

The Friday afternoon 
purple-and-white decorated 
motorcade which leaves the 
campus deserted for the 
weekend has gradually taken 
the place of the boisterous 
Saturday morning train ride 
to Shreveport. Saturday 
features a morning rather 
than an afternoon pep rally 
and parade, luncheons and 
fraternity dances. Queens and 
their courts are still presented 
prior to the night's game. 

Some things have changed -- 
■ the students, the players, 
some of the activities — but 
the basic elements of the 
week are still here, annually 
sparked by the eternal, in- 
tense rivalry between 
Louisiana Tech and Nor- 

"Throw out nat 
monosodiumglutamate ! Rid 
your shelves of BHA ud 
BHT! Wipe out potassium 

So go the rallying cries of 
the dead-serious disciples of 
the most current of currait 
fads sweeping the countrj—

• On the other side of t 
fence are many orthod 
health experts, includi 
chemists and representath 
of the FDA. "Food faddii 
persists despite 
controvertible scientii 
evidence denying 
validity," Dr. Robert 
Olson, head of the departm< 
of biochemistry at St. Loi 
University, recently tc 
Better Homes and Garde 
"Food has emotional rati 
than intellectual value to t 
average person, and the fo 
faddists have capitalized 
this fact," he added. 

"Health" foods, say t 
promoters, are specific foe 
supposedly superior

of their exceptional nutriti 
nature. "Organic" foods s 
products heralded as superi 
because they are, it's claim*

who add that durii

"Organically-grown food

tilized with organic fertilize 
and foods grown without t 
use of chemical pesticides. 

Food experts say that 
edible food is "health" foe 
regardless of where the food

believe that natural' is a 
synonym for 'pure.'" 

Dr. Jean Mayer of the 
Harvard School of Public 
Health writes in Family 
Health that "One of the most 
important reasons for cooking 
food is not for taste or ten- 
derness but for protection 

against bacteria and parasites 
which may contaminate even 
the most lovingly grown 
organic foods. 

"While organic foods may 
escape chemical pollution, 
biologically speaking they 
tend to become the most 
contaminated of all," Dr. 
Mayer concludes. 

Health foods —The promoters of so-called 

"health" or "organic foods laud the value of 
getting back to nature and reject conventional 
supermarket wares. 

purchased. All foods are 
natural or manufactured from 
natural foods. All foods are 
"organic" since they all 
contain carbon. 

Lost nutrients? 

Modern food processing 
does not, as some claim, rob 
food of its nutritional values. 
Actually, the reverse is true — 
lost values are restored by 
the addition of helpful sub- 
stances, such as iodine to salt. 

The FDA warns that "foods 
processed or prepared en- 
tirely with the use of additives 
are more likely to deteriorate 
or change with time, resulting 
in losses of nutrients or 
development of undesirable 
substances." A food processor 
or additive maker must prove 
any new additive safe in the 
quantity used before it can be 
served to the consumer. . 

Modern agriculture uses 
commercial chemical fer- 
tilizers rather than compost 
and manure as farmers did in 
the past. Food faddists fear 

that these new fertilizers 
reduce the nutritional value of 
food and leave harmful 
residues on plants. The health 
food advocates say that all 
food should be grown on land 
fertilized with compost and 

FDA officials hold that there 
are no significant differences 
in nutritional values of food 
grown under either organic or 
conventional conditions. The 
nutritional value of an apple is 
not changed by using different 

The fears about pesticide 
residues on food are largely 
unfounded, the FDA further 
claims. One scientist points 
out, "If you ate only celery for 
75 years, you might... ac- 
cumulate enough stores of 
insecticides in your tissues to 
do some damage." Celery is 
one food which carries more 
pesticides than others.

Movie Notes 


"Oklahoma Crude," starring George C. Scott, 
Faye Dunaway and Jack Palance, is set to start 
tomorrow night at the Don Theatre. Widely- 
acclaimed by critics as "one of the best movies of 
the year," the picture focuses on the Oklahoma 
oil fields of 1913 and the men and women who 
searched for the black gold. Lusty, fast-moving 
adventure is backed by the music of Henry 
Mancini and Anne Murray in this Columbia 
Pictures presentation. (Wednesday — Saturday) 

Another smash hit with movie critics is 
"Butterflies Are Free," which starts Sunday at 
the Don. Goldie Hawn stars as a sensuous 
butterfly, used to flitting from man to man, but 
who suddenly finds herself involved with a blind 
boy who could be shattered by her leaving. 
"Butterflies Are Free" is guaranteed to hit the 
heart and the furmybone equally effectively. 


Tomorrow night's double feature at the Chief 
Drive-In is "Wild Free and Hungry" and "Chain 
Gang Women." Showing Friday and Saturday are 
"Santee," starring Glenn Ford, and "Wonder 
Women." Coming Sunday to the Chief is the

Mid-East conflict flairs again 


Fierce and bloody fighting is 
currently raging across the war 
plagued Middle East. It is not the 
first time that fighting has broken 
out between Israel and the Arab 
countries and, if history holds true, 
it will not be the last. 

The current war had its historical 
beginning more than 30 years ago. 
Jews, returning to Palestine from 
their dispersion in Europe, stepped 
up their drive for a national 

The Arabs - held back for years 
under the rule of a host of foreign 
powers, including the French, the 
Turks and the British - saw the 
Jewish immigration of the 1930's 
and '40's as yet another attempt to 
impose foreign domination. 

A pattern of guerrilla-like fighting 
- hit-and-run attacks on Arab and 
Jewish settlements - emerged in the 
troubled years of British Mandate 
rule in Palestine. 

In 1948, the United Nations 
stepped in to declare the partition of 

Palestine into twin Arab and Jewish 
states. On May 14, Israel's first 
premier, David Ben Gurion, 
proclaimed Jewish statehood. 

That declaration was marred by 
the wail of air sirens. The Arab 
states, with Egypt, Syria, Jordan 
and Lebanon in the forefront, had 
answered the calls for "Jihad" - a 
holy war to sweep the fledging state 
of Israel into the sea. 

The results of that war, and the 
major conflicts that followed in 1956 
and 1967 are history. Israel stood 
against the invasion. Its army, 
swelled by a massive airlift of 
weapons and supplies from abroad, 
beat back the Arab forces to ar- 
mistice lines far beyond those laid 
out by the United Nations. 

Today's fighting seems to have its 
roots in the six-day war that swept 
the Middle East in June, 1967. Israel 
won that war, as it has all others, 
and captured hundreds of square 
miles of territory, including the 
Sinai Peninsula ruled by Egypt; 

Jordon's West Bank; and Syria's 
Golan Heights. And within those 
territories came more than a million 
Arabs living under occupation rule. 

An undercurrent of impending 
violence has been building in the 
Middle East over the past two 
months. After nearly two years of 
inter-Arab squabbles, Egypt, Syria 
and Jordan have been realigning 
themselves for what appeared to be 
a new offensive. 

Jordan had broken its ties with, 
Egypt and Syria following the 
bloody civil sparked by Palestinian 
attempts to unseat King Hussein in 
1971. But after a meeting between 
King Hussein and the President of 
Egypt last month, diplomatic 
relations were restored. 

Then last month, there was a 
major clash in the skies over the 
Mediterranean between Israel and 
Syrian warplanes. By Israeli ac- 
counts, 13 Syrian jets were downed 
at a cost of one Israeli plane. The 
is claimed five Israeli planes 

and said they lost eight jets. 

It is unclear who sparked the 
latest Mideast fighting, which broke 
out as the Israelis marked the holiest 
day of the Hebrew calendar - Yom 
Kippur - the day of atonement. 
Arabs, too, were in the midst of the 
month-long Moslem feast of 
Ramadan, a month of dawn-to-dusk 

In 1967, it took the Jews only six 
days to force a settlement upon the 

Israel has however, siiTI -ed, its 
worst military setback in . 5 years 
with the Arab smash-through of 
the Bar Lev defense line on the Suez 
lines. Reports show that the Israelis 
are slowly gaining back some of this 
lost ground. 

Late last week, it was believed 
that Iraq had foined the fighting 
against Israel by launching ground 
and air forces at the Golan Heights. 
Israel planes retaliated by 
bomobinh the Al Zalaf area on the 
ia-Iraqui frontier.

Local families involved 
in foreign ministry plan 


Seventeen Natchitoches 
families are participating this 
year in Northwestern State 
University's host family 
ministry program which was 
begun in 1972 to help develop 
closer relationships between 
the international students at 
NSU and local families. 

The host family ministry, 
which brings international 
students in contact with 
Natchitoches families each 
week and into their homes at 
least once a month, is one of 
three programs which were 
begun with the formation last 
fall of the International 
Students Committee to solve 
some of the problems which 
are unique to foreign students. 

Agatha Newitt, director of 
Northwestern 's International 
Office, said other programs 
developed to aid foreign 
students include a special 
orientation class and a course 
in English, which foreign 
students are encouraged to 
take and are often required to 

have if a professor feels that 
difficulty with the English 
language is hampering a 
student's learning 

Problems which face in- 
ternational students who are 
attending college thousands of 
miles away from their native 
countries led Dr. Richard 
Galloway, NSU vice-president 
for student affairs, to call for 
the establishment of the In- 
ternational Students Com- 

"These international 
students were living in 
isolation before we did 
something about the 
problems they were having," 
Dr. Galloway said. "They 
were lonely people. They were 
not becoming knowledgeable

of American customs and life 
styles, These people were not 
going into the homes where 
they could learn these things." 

Miss Newitt said, "For the 
host family, the year can 
mean opportunities to share 
family joys, plans and in- 
terests with an international 
student. The student in turn, 
has someone close to turn to 
in times of loneliness, sorrow 
and personal emergencies." 

Dr. Galloway stated that 
through the kind of in- 
teraction between the in- 
ternational student and the 
family, a breakdown of 
regional barriers created by 
Americans' negative attitudes 
toward international students 
is possible. 

Veterans club assists 
in G.I. benefit gains 

The Northwestern Veterans Club, a newly chartered 
campus organization, lists as its major objective assistance 
in obtaining educational and social benefits for armed forces 
veterans under the G. I. Bill. According to John D. 
Alexander, president of the Northwestern chapter and 
himself a 6-year veteran, the club has the largest potential 
membership on campus, with a total of 660 veterans and 136 
dependents enrolled this semester. 

Frederick Bosarge, dean of men, serves as the club's 
sponsor, Dudley Fulton, professor of behavioral sciences, 
serves as the dependent advisor, and Maj. Gen. John Gray 
Wheelock in serves as the veteran advisor. 

Currently looking for new members to join their ranks, the 
Northwestern Veterans Club collects no dues and is open to 
all veterans and their dependents. 

The next club meeting will be on Oct. 22, at noon, in room 
320 of the Student Union. All interested persons are 
encouraged to attend. Further information can be obtained 
from the Dean of Men 's office , phone 6702. 


Mountain Boys who performed at last week's Coffeehouse were (1 to r), 
Rev. James Jones, on the washboard bass, Ed Huey on the guitar, and 
Terry Barbin, on the banjo. The Coffeehouse this semester is currently 
looking for student groups to perform at the events, with another 
Coffeehouse night planned for the end of November. Randy Jones is 
chairman of the Coffeehouse committee. 

Learning program centers 
on educational problems 

A new home-based learning 
program has been established 
in Natchitoches Parish. The 
program deals directly with 
children in grades kin- 
dergarten through third 
grade, and is brought into the 
home for these children who 
are having difficulty in their 
classwork. It is a companion 
to the Title 7 program in the 
public schools. 

The program is sponsored 
by the Natchitoches Area 
Action Association and is 
funded by the Department of 
Health, Education and 
Welfare. The home based 
learning program visits with 
the families of 750 students in 
seven area schools' Natchez, 
Campti, Claraice, Ashland, 
Robeline, half of Weaver and 
half of Parks. 

Mrs. Mary Oden welder is 
the director of the program 
and brings with her nine years 
of experience in programs 
such as this one. She was 
awarded her master's degree 
in early childhood education 
recently and is an alumna of 

Several Northwestern 
students have become in- 
volved with the program and 
have been hired as Com- 
munity Facilitators. They 
work in two of the seven school 
districts contained in the 
program. In Natchez, Butch 
Champagne makes his 
monthly visits to determine 
how the children are doing and 
to see if any additional 

materials are needed. In 
Natchitoches six other 
students visit families. They 
are Wayne Black, Carol 
Ferguson, Donald Johnson, 
Nettie Johnson, John Metoyer, 
and Debbie Miller. 

Other people involved in the 
program are Theresa Vallien, 
Public Relations Liaison 
Officer; Majorie Blackston, 
Community Facilitator 
Coordinator; and Jackie

Dr. James Meriwether speaks on writer 

^ulkner was novelist, not historian 

By Debby Lee 

Civil War functions as

pportant one at that," 
Dr. James B. 
aether, national 



ames Meriwether 
Faulkner expert 

authority on American 
novelist William Faulkner, in 
his address last Thursday. Dr. 
Meriwether's topic as the 
second Distinguished Lec- 
turer was "Faulkner and the 
Civil War." 

Dr. Meriwether explained 
that the title of his speech was 
somewhat misleading as most 
of Faulkner's settings were 
contemporary and dealt with 
the present or the immediate 
past. Where the Civil War does 
figure in his novels, Dr. 
Meriwether pointed out, the 
author makes a "chaotic mess 
of the chronology of the war." 

He emphasized Faulkner's 
absent-mindedness con- 
cerning dates and recollected 

one incident which occured 
while following the author 
around Princeton University, 
where he gave reporters three 
different middle names, birth- 
places and birthdates. The 
lecturer noted, "Speaking as a 
South Caroliner, I'm saying 
that he (Faulkner) gets 
nothing right that happens in 
my state." 

Using selections from the 
author himself and other 
authorities, Dr. Meriwether 
illustrated some of Faulkner's 
ideas on history and the war. 
Faulkner was interested in 
history, according to the 
lecturer. Concerning the 
author's "bungling" of dates 
and battle sites, Dr.

Johnson rates another award 

Meriwether stated, "He is our 
greatest Southern writer. He 
was not a historian. He was a 
novelist." He added that one 
should not confuse the novel 
with history and vice 

The professor said Faulkner 
belonged to a generation 
which had adopted a 
"debunking" attitude towards 
the older generation, those 
who had fought in the war. 
"He demonstrates the typical 
youthful rebelliousness at the 
previous generation" said Dr. 
Meriwether. He brought out 
the fact that Faulkner never 
presents a sentimentalized 
picture of the Anti-Bell um 
South and even pokes fun at 
the Confederate veterans in 
some of his works.

bring their revival of the in-

describes as a "consort". 

Using over 11 varieties of 
instruments ranging from a 
saxophone to the harp to the 
African Amandinda 
Xylophone, they switch 
smoothly from jazz to 
classical to rock to folk. 

Winter, who plays soprano 
and alto sax, organized the 
consort idea of music after a 
tour over 23 foreign countries.

Opera Theater opens season 

BREAKING THE ICE • Peony, played by Mary Beth Flncher, 
gives a life-giving kiss to the Snowman, Joseph Cotton in the opera 
production of "A Childhood Miracle." 

The Northwestern Opera Theater, in 
its fourth year on campus, will present 
Ned Rorem's "A Childhood Miracle " 
this Thursday and Friday at 8 p.m. in 
the Fine Arts Auditorium. The 
production is part of the Natchitoches- 
Northwestern Symphony Concert 

"A Childhood Miracle," a one-act 
fairy tale based on the story "Snow 
Image," is directed by David Ketchum. 

"I was very impressed with the work 
because this composer isn't par- 
ticularly known as an opera composer 
but rather as a song composer living 
today and having been called the 
Schubert of America,' " said Ketchum. 

The opera centers on two young and 
impressionable girls, Peony and Violet, 

whose imaginative minds prove fatal to 
them. One bleak winter day Peony and 
Violet revel in a snowstorm and build a 
snowman. They endow him with life 
and proudly proclaim him their brother, 
Joseph Cotton has been cast in the role 
of the snowman. Mary Ruth Fincher 
plays Peony and Carol Repulskd is cast 
as Violet. 

Ronnie Bales portrays the girls' 
father who returns home from an 
errand in town and quickly rushes 
Peony and Violet into the house. In the 
children's minds the snowman follows 
them into the house where the mother 
(Mary Beth Lanzillotti) and their aunt 
(Lou Ann Taylor) are. 

The opera ends in disaster for the 
girls and the snowman.

munications Commission (FCC) for an 
FM station. 

With the AM system, the station 
would be available to on-campus 
students. The students living in Nat- 
chitoches would not be assessed the 
proposed fee until the FM station is put 
into operation. When completed the FM 
station would have a range of about five 
miles in all directions. 

Plans now call for the facility to be 
set up in the old Russell Library Bldg. 

In deciding on whether the goal of the 
project should be AM or FM, the group 
sent out surveys to colleges across the 
nation who had campus stations in 
operation. "All the colleges that had 
FM preferred it and most of the ones 
that had AM wished they had FM," said 
Rodney Harrington, chairman of the 
Student Services Committee which 
reviewed the proposal and presented it 
to the SBA last Monday. 

The student senate agreed to put the 
proposal up for a student referendum 
by a vote of 16 for and one abstention.

the matter and a rejection slip from the 

student referendum will dead-end the 

Supporters of the radio station state 
that music will occupy approximately 
95 percent of the air time, with the 
remaining five percent reserved for the 
transmission of education material in 
the form of announcements from the 
administration and various campus 

"One of our main goals is to give the 
students something that they cannot get 
elsewhere: music and information 
specifically for the Northwestern 
student. News and commercials can be 
picked up from other sources," the 
group reported in a written statement. 

Other than the financing from the 
student fees, an initial outlay of $4200 
will be needed to purchase the equip- 
ment and license. This money would be 
granted from the SBA fund. 

Proponents of the station estimate 
that expenses for the station should run 
about $4,000 per year to cover telephone 
charges, postage, engineering supplies, 
office supplies, building modifications, 
jingles and station identifications. 

Proposed faculty advisors are Dr. 
Stan Chadickof the Mathematics Dept., 
Mrs. Lou Thomas of the Language 
Dept. and Dr. Tommy Johnson of the 
Business and Office administration 
Dept. Student supporters and proposed 
executive staff for the station are Mike 
Price, Shawn Tillman, Ruben Tweedy, 
Stuart Smith and Barbara Valatka. 

"It's really a very charming work," 
said Ketchum," but we must always 
keep in mind that it is a fairy tale in 
order to truly enjoy it. The cast has

community an opportunity to broaden 
their cultural scope."

such to explain the previous sighting. 

To the left was Sibley Lake and in the 
central of our view were the lights from 
the Natchitoches Municipal Airport, 
but over that part of Kisatchie no lights 
were visible. 

A rage of reports from over the 
United States, especially Louisiana, 
Mississippi and Ohio, have kept necks 
craned to observe all types of 

White lights, red lights, green lights 
and a combination of the three in such 
shapes as ovular, round and even as an 
isosceles triangle have been reported 
shooting, hovering, and in Mississippi, 
even landing on Southern soil. 

The reports are not new and neither is 
the conclusion - "probably not, 
but maybe." 

The last flare-up of interest in UFO's 
came in the mid-sixties with 508 
sightings reported in 1966. The Air 
Force kept tabs on reportings in what 

was known as the Blue Book which 
included a photograph of an object 
hovering above a house in Ohio. 

The volume was so great that a 
government study was requisitioned 
and was headed by University of 
Colorado physicist Edward U. Condon. 

His report issued in 1969 relieved 
many persons but still left enough room 

to give credence to future sightings. 
The Condon report concluded that 
almost all UFO reports had plausible 
explanations such as optical illusions, 
stars, weather inversions and even 

But the report didn't deter devotees 
such as the members of the 
Amalgamated Flying Saucer Clubs of 

America, but also experts such as 
professor of Astronomy at Nor- 
thwestern University J. Allen Hynek. 

Dr. Robert P. Roger, head of the 
Dept. of Physics here at NSU said that 
although he does not believe any of the 
recent sightings were visitors from 
outer space, "I can't rule out the 
existence of extraterrestrial beings 
from another solar system." 

Of the Condon report, Dr. Roger said, 
"From reading it, I got the distinct 
impression the government was trying 
to conceal something. " 

The bizarre tale of two men in 
Pascagoula, Miss, who claimed to have 
been picked up and taken aboard a 
flying saucer is not unprecedented 
either. In 1966, Look magazine ran a 
two-part series on a New Hampshire 
couple who reported under hypnosis to 
have been taken aboard a "large 
glowing pancake with fins." 

No conclusion was ever issued on that 
report and the only thing that can 
surmise from the latest UFO sightings 
is they seem to prefer the Southern 
climate and Cajun cuisine. 

In 1969, Miles joined Jimi Hendrix 
and Billy Cox to form a trio called 
Band of Gypsies for six months during 
which time they recorded an album for 
Capitol records. 

Then in 1970, he began his own per- 
sonal excursion into the music 
hierarchy. At that time he said, "I want 
just one thing. I want people to realize 
that I'm just as qualified and just as 
ready to handle all lands of music as 
anyone else." 

From there followed four albums, 
three of them listed on the charts at the 
same time. Among the hits was Miles' 
version of Neil Young's "Down the

One More Idea 

By Ronald Sanchez 

Sam Ervin might have his Watergate 
Commission, but now the Northwestern SBA, in a 
mood not to be outdone, has set up their own team 
of super-sleuths— this one, the Current Sauce 
Investigation Committee— to study this 
newspaper's financial troubles. Not to equate the 
Current Sauce inquiry with the full-blown 
television marathon or to suggest that anyone has 
been involved in any under-the-table pilfering, I 
believe this committee is a long-overdue move by 
the SBA to insure that student funds supporting 
this publication-the official journal of the student 
body-are spent in the students' best interests. 

Impetus for the establishment of the Current 
Sauce Investigation Committee apparently 
stemmed from my editorial column two weeks 
ago which indicated the possibility of a reduction 
in the newspaper's size due to economic factors. 
As I then reported, I had been advised, by the 
Current Sauce advisor Franklin I. Presson, that 
the advertising volume must equal the production 
costs or that a smaller newspaper was in order. 
The expressed purpose of that particular 
editorial, making reference to the 22-andl6-page 
newspapers of the not-so distant past, was to 
illustrate that (1) the Current Sauce, under its 
present arrangement of printing at the 
Natchitoches Times, has never been totally 
supported by ads; (2) it is virtually impossible to 
do so; and (3) this "advisement" was just a little 
late in coming. 

A check with the Current Sauce financial 
records should prove me correct on all three 
points. First, this newspaper cannot-and should 
not~solely depend on advertising as its only 
means of support. Student fees necessarily come 
into the picture. While local merchants have 
generally been cooperative in their advertising 
contributions, the Natchitoches business 
community is just not expansive enough to each 
week pump the necessary dollars through our 
office. Student fees need to pick up some of the 

According to our files, the special 22-page Tech 
Weekend issue of October, 1971, rang the cash 
register at a startling $2,530.45 total. But on the 
opposite side of the ledger, the advertising in that 
particular issue amounted to just $861.25. Clearly, 
the advertising did not cover production. In the 16- 
page four-color Christmas issue of the same year, 
just $483.45 in advertising went into a $1,449.75 
extravaganza. Again, the advertising did not 
cover the production costs. And these were not 
isolated examples of lavish expense, with 
virtually all the past newspaper advertising 
falling far short of their cost. 

Second, to completely pay for the newspaper 
with advertising • alone each week would 
necessitate putting together what could only be 
compared to a supermarket circular. There 
would be little room for news, much less for the 
newspaper "extras" like sports, features, 
organizational announcements, fraternity- 
sorority announcements, etc. As editor of a 
university publication, I am not yet prepared to 
present such a hack-effort before the students. 

And lastly, the anxiety over the Current Sauce 
financial woes should have peaked before, or at 
least while, the present $1700 debt was developing. 
This after-the-fact concern certainly conjures up 
memories of the old "ounce of prevention" and 
"pound of cure" cliche. As stated in my previous 
editorial, the Current Sauce must have had, at one 
time, room to breathe-financially speaking. The 
expenditures would seem to indicate that the 
Current Sauce, at one time, knew the feel of 
folding green. 

According to our ledger sheets, the 1972 
Journalism day outing cost the Current Sauce 
bankroll $2,152.74, $1,500 of that for the speaker 
series. The "Meet the Press" Banquet of the same 
year tallied an additional $230, from the Current 
Sauce funds. These two departmental projects, 
associated with the Current Sauce only by 
professional interest .should not have, in my 
opinion, been underwritten by student funds 
designated to put out a newspaper. Apparently, 
someone now agrees with me, for I understand 
this practice has been eliminated. 

Other expenditures will undoubtably come 
under the careful scrutiny of the Current Sauce 
Investigation Committee, with a $454.98 Dallas 
convention trip for staff members and a $432.60 
IBM typewriter bill two of the notable red-ink 
expenses. There are other figures, and other 
details, but the fact remains: The Current sauce 
can no longer frolic in this financial playpen. 

And why should I bring all this up here? For one 
reason, these are the things the Current Sauce 
Investigation Committee needs to know to fully 
understand our problem. Secondly, I would like to 
clear up any misconceptions which apparently are 
already circulating on the Northwestern 'grape- 
vine'. This is a financial problem and the committee 
members are in no way concerned with editorial 
content, the organization of the paper, or the staff. 
And lastly, I would like to emphasize that 
speculation concerning the replacement of the 
Current Sauce advertising manager Bob McGuirt 
at this particular time is in no way connected to 
the concern over the advertising volume, but 
rather came about as the culmination of long 
range plans. I would venture to say that he was the 
most efficient advertising manager to work for 
the Current Sauce in quite a while. 

Watergate might 'have begun as a trickle, but it 
soon managed to engulf just about anyone within a 
certain radius from the center. And the present 
investigation into the murky waters of the Current 
Sauce financial history might just open the 
Northwestern flood gates. Life jackets,

Nixon-Cox legal hassle over the White 
House tapes, and by the general purge

whole 1973 quagmire of corruption and 

Spiro Agnew, almost five years this 
nation's vice president, less than two 
weeks ago pleaded no contest to 
charges of cheating on his income tax 
returns while a Maryland country 
executive and later governor, and 
receiving kickbacks on governmental 
contracts while serving just a heartbeat 
away from the presidency. Spiro 
Agnew, the same man who attacked the 
press during his tenure in office for 
irresponsibility and who insisted that 
law and order be the theme of the Nixon 
administration, bowed out of his 
Washington post- and possible future 
political activity— with the evidence 
stacked against him. 

But it's the tainted image of the Nixon 
regime that stands to lose still more 
ground in an eleventh-hour attempt to 
add some credibility to an already 

floundering presidency. In 1968 and in 
1972, Nixon entrusted his second-spot on 
the election ticket to Agnew, a con- 
fidence that was severely shaken by the 
latest tax dodging and kickback 

Although insisting up until the nearly 
anti-climactic announcement that he 
was innocent of the charges brought 
against him by the Justice Department, 
Agnew decided that the long drawn-out 
procedure of court battles to prevent, 
conviction would be detrimental to the 
national interests, and he entered his 
plea with the understanding that an 
unsupervised probation period and 
maximum fine would be imposed. 

Agnew's less than honorable exit 
from the national scene left bitter 
feelings with key people in the Nixon 
camp. Said one aide, "The important 
thing was to get Agnew out of here, and 
he's gone ! " But like it or not, the Agnew 
scandal will surely be associated with 
President Nixon's White House stay. 
Only the second vice president to come 
under fire to the point of an almost 
mandatory resignation, Agnew and his 
soiled political dealings will certainly 
go down on the records as just another 
chapter in the unfolding American 
higher-echelon upheaval. 

The Agnew escapade may just be 
another twist in the already unusual 

examination has ever been the light of public 
disclosure, of LBJ and Bobby 
Baker or of Chappaquidick. 
Where was Congress then, 
where was the media? Few 
facts were rooted out. As for 
telling the American public 
the truth, few are concerned 
beyond the current scores in 
the World Series, and fewer 
still are capable of examining 
the philosophical proportion 
of total power and total 

So, rather than watching a 
system police itself we see the 
media thrust its own values 
and views upon us daily, we 
see one branch of government 
engaged in a hypocritical 
examination of another 
branch, not unlike the 
hypocritical and sanc- 
timonious fiasco of the 
Nuremberg Trials and we 
watch the government's legal 
arm, the Department of 
Justice calmly accept sen- 
tences from the courts for 
burglary which are more 
severe than for manslaughter.

end of the road 


curve of the Nixon administration. 
When it is found that the individual 
second in command has been pocketing 
private funds for political favors, 
speculation circulates whether or not it 
is feasible to have any uncorrupted, 
public figures in office. Or it might be 
likewise assumed that things aren't 
always what they seem-and the image 
of Agnew the proud diminishes in the 
face of his now commonly-known 
crimes. But the irony of the events 
remain the central keynote: 

Agnew rose to national prominence 
with a call for law and order— and 
plummeted as the disgraced victim of 
his own directive.

Just what the investigatory team will unearth remains to be seen. But with the

A superficial glance at some 
student attire disproves the 
image that all students are 
donning designer creations. 
Both men and women wear

embroidered cuffs and pat-

raggedy bleached blue work

black undershirts. And a pair 
of aged, scruffy Wellingtons.

On many campuses it's no

fashionable. Designer clothes 
- wide ties, cartridge belts, 
hot and cold pants, et al - are 
out and Costumes are in. A 
Costume is more individual

concept, rather than a 
covering. Farmer jeans with 
criss-cross straps, flag shirts, 
psychedelic jockey shorts and 
home-made, home-grown, tie- 
dyed shirts reeking of that 
organic look are all Costumes. 

If college students are in-

been washed in soft suds, drip

Bulldogs put bite on Demons, 26-7 

By Dan McDonald 
Sauce Sports Editor 

The large sign out front says: "It's 
^ur fair, so be here!" 
'contrary to popular belief, the 
fforthwestern State Demons were at 
Fair. It's just that they arrived 
4 t»ut two quarters too late. 
By that time, the Louisiana Tech 
nuildogs had rolled up a 26-0 lead, 
pi used this margin to coast to a 26- 
jffin over the Demons in front of a 
jjcord 33,000 spectators in newly 
ppanded State Fair Stadium in 
jreveport Saturday night. 
In essence, Northwestern was 
never in the contest. From the 
opening kickoff it was apparent that 
Tech was going to be able to move 
the ball on the outmanned Demon 
defense, and that NSU was not going 
,jp be able to move through the 'Dog 
Stoppers that easily. 
The win was Tech's fifth straight 
er an opening loss to Eastern 
igan, and moved them closer to 
I higher ranking in most of the 
naitonal polls. The Demons' season 
k fell to 4-3 and the loss knocked 

through the end zone. When the 
Demons took over this time, it was 
again three plays before Randy 
Walker came onto the field to handle 
the punting chores. It became ob- 
vious that the Bulldogs were going to 
be able to stop the NSU one-two 
running attack of Mario "The 
Rage" Cage and Sidney Thronton. 

Thornton was the top rusher for 
NSU, with only 36 yards, while Cage 
was held to just 25. 

On Walker's third punt of the 
night, which came with the contest 
only eleven minutes old, 'Dog safety 
Wenford Wilborn signaled the end of 
the Demon hopes when he gathered 
in the kick at his own 21. After 
retreating to avoid two tacklers, he 
took off down the right sideline and 
was not headed as he went 79 yards 

for a tally that made it 12-0. 

On their next possession, Nor- 
thwestern was finally able to pick up 
a first down , but even that came on a 
fourth-and-one plunge by Thornton. 
Three plays later, it was Walker 
again to punt, for the fourth time in 
the opening period. 

It wasn't long after that the 
Bulldogs hit the scoreboard again, 
as quarterback Denny Duron lofted 
a bomb in the direction of Carr, who 
grabbed the pigskin at the one-yard 
line. Duron went over himself on the 
next play to run the lead to 19-0. 

The Demons were again able to 
pick up only one first down on their 
next possession, as Butch Ballard 
found flanker Gene Knecht for one of 
his two completions. Again Walker 
came on to boot the ball away to the

of egalitaria ign of things to come. 

The 'Dogs took possession and 
promptly drove 61 yards in 12 plays 
for their opening score with just over 
sx minutes gone. Halfback Glen 
Berteau carried eight times in the 
drive, and went the last four for the 
score. Suprisingly, the Techsters

The Tech passing game came 
alive in the next series, one which 
led to the Bulldogs' final first-half 
points. Duron repeatedly picked out 
his receivers in completing five 
passes during the 19-play drive. 
Charles McDaniel went the final 
yard for the touchdown that made it 
26-0, the halftime intermission 
saving NSU from further em-

Kelly and Jarvis Blinks, prevented 
Tech from putting more points up

Finally early in the fourth period, 
the Demon offense began to come 
alive. Freshman quarterback Stuart 
Wright took NSU from their own 20

and the other to Stan Brouillette for 
14, with a 15-yard personal foul 
penalty against Tech sandwiched

his own backfield before lofting a 
bomb to a wide open Mario Cage at 
the 'Dog ten-yard line. Cage took it 
the rest of the way to avoid the 

Before Walker could tack on the 
extra point, a wild melee erupted 
between Thornton and Bulldog end 
Danny Curtis. Order was finally 
restored, but not before Tech 
linebacker Joe McNeely barged in 
and threw a few punches at the 
nearest Demon jersey. 

Most of the final period was a 
sustained battle between the Demon 
defense and Tech's second offensive 
unit, as NSU strove to stave off 
further embarassment. The 'Dogs 
were not to put any more points on 
the board, but, then again, neither 
were the Demons.

That is the question. 
That may sound a bit funny, 

he Fedf but Northwestern 's coaches 

agree that the 5-foot-10, 224- 
pound Marcotte looks like an 
ancient Roman. 

He (Marcotte) does look 
like Caesar," insists NSU 
defensive line Coach Jerry 
Arledge. When asked what 
Caesar looked like, Arledge 

rent Sauce 

)aston Hal

Whoever Marcotte appears 
to looklike, he'sfast becoming 
. j an established defensive 
publication^ for Northw estern. 

«*|$nce he was moved from 

noseguard to tackle early in 
the fall, Marcotte has im- 
proved with every game. 

In the Northeast game 
Marcotte had 12 tackles and 
graded better than he has in 
Northwestern 's earlier 
games. "Jimmy was going 
against the best man he's g one 
against this year (NLU tackle 
Jimmy Jones) and I'd say 
Marcotte did okay," Arledge 
said. "Marcotte is still making 
a lot of fundamental mistakes, 
but he's working on them." 

Small for a college defen- 
sive tackle, Marcotte has to 
rely on his quickness. "Jim is 
a quick reader like Satch 
(NSU defensive tackle 
Sterling Baldwin who 

graduated last year)," 
Arledge said. "If you're small, 
you better read quick and 
move quick." 

Marcotte has been "a real 
surprise to the whole coaching 
staff," Arledge said. "He's 
accepted a big challenge, but I 
expect him to improve for the 
rest of our games too." 

Marcotte, who starred as an 
offensive and defensive 
lineman for Natchitoches 
Central in high school, is a 
favorite with Demon Stadium 
fans because he's aggressive 
on the football field. 

"He's not bashful," Arledge 
says of Marcotte. "Football's 
a contact sport and that's why 
he likes it. You can tell the 

type of player he is by his 
desire to get to the football. He 
wants to stick his head on the 
ball carrier every play." 

In four games this season, 
Marcotte has accumulated 39 
tackles - an average of almost 
10 tackles a game - which 
isn't bad for a tackle. His one- 
game high is 13 tackles 
against Southwestern 

"Grade-wise I'm still 
grading him tough so that he 

will correct such mistakes as 
using the wrong shoulder and 
standing up too high," Arledge 
said. "But I have confidence 
that he will correct these 
mistakes and be an out- 
standing player for us." 

Most of NSU's players didn't 
realize that Coach Arledge 
called Marcotte "Julius 
Caesar." But their first 
reaction when they found out 
was, "You know, he does look 
like Caesar." 

The final score was 26-7, and it could have 
been much worse. 

I mean, when your offense can't move and 
your defense can't stop your opponents from 
moving, you're destined to be defeated. And 
that's exactly what happened last Saturday 
night at State Fair Stadium. 

Although the Demons came back and 
played the Bulldogs on even terms in the 
second half (and pushed across the only 
score), the contest for all practical purposes 
was over when Charles "Quick Six" 
McDaniel went across from the one with 
under three minutes left in the first half. That 
tally made it 26-0, and the only question left 
in most of the minds of the spectators was 
when to leave the stadium in order to avoid 
the inevitable post-game traffic jam. 

I must have been asked the same question a 
hundred times after the game, both in the 
press box and out on the fair grounds: 

Maybe the Demons were psyched. They had 
read for two weeks about how big, strong, and 
powerful the Bulldogs were, and listened to 
their own fans count them out and predict 
against them. A defeatist attitude could easily 

Thornton 's showing 
no shock to 'The Rage' 

have been possible (or probable to anyone 
who had spent some time on campus last 

Maybe the Demons were reverse-psyched. 
People around the state (myself included) 
had written and commented that previous 
records meant nothing when these two teams 
met on the football field. Perhaps, 
subconsciously, they got the idea that a half- 
effort showing was all that was necessary to 
make a ball game of it. After all, wasn't this 
one the State Fair Game? 

Finally, maybe the Demons ran into a Tech 
team that was fired up beyond belief and 
ready to take out their wrath on whoever 
stood in their way. And, believe me, the game 
wasn't that difficult to get up for. 

Maybe, and this can be a fourth possibility, 
the Demons ran into a combination of the first 
three. It's tough enough to go out and beat any 
team when your own followers have counted 
you out, you are not completely mentally 
ready, and your adversaries are riding a tidal 
wave of emotion. 

And when those adversaries are as good as 
Tech, you haven't got a prayer. 

The Mad Predictor 

Current Sauce PICKIN' PANEL 

It was a bad week for just about 
everybody on the Current Sauce PICKIN' 
PANEL. Sports editor Dan McDonald 
suffered through a 6-4 week and saw his 
lead over editor Ronald Sanchez slip to 
only two games, after Sanchez's 7-3 tally. 

Guest predictor Rodney Harrington 
continued the string of three weeks for 7-3 
finishes for guest pickers, while 
circulation manager Rodney Chandler fell 
to his second straight 6-4 mark and 
plummetted into possession of last place.

Northwestern State 
University star tailback Mario 
"The Rage" Cage wasn't 
surprised at the 152-yard 
rushing performance by 
Demon rookie Sidney Thorn- 
ton last week against Florence 

Cage, who is Thornton's 
roommate, expected the 205- 
pound Thornton to have a good 

In fact, Thornton had a 
better game than Cage has 
had this season. After serving 
as a backup man for Cage at 
tailback, Thornton was shifted 
to a starting role at fullback 
and responded with the ninth 
best rushing performance 
ever by a Demon runner. 

Only four other NSU run- 
ners have surpassed 152 yards 
in a single game. Fullback 
Richard Ware holds the school 
record with 186 followed by 
Donald Johnson (184, 173, 170, 
168 and 157), Charlie Tolar 
(164) and Art Lancaster 

Cage who carried the ball 19 
times for 80 yards against 
Florence, has a best game of 
148 yards and another 144- 
yard game. 

Thornton, a high school 
standout at Baton Rouge- 
Capitol, was redshirted last 
season, but showed promise 
during spring training. But 
the day before he was sup- 
posed to report for fall drills, 
he crushed his little finger in a 
car door and missed the first 
two weeks of practice. 

"Missing those two weeks 
set him (Thornton) back some 
from the rest of our backs," 

said NSU offensive backfield 
Coach Johnnie Emmons. "It 
hurt his conditioning ... he's 
still not in tip top shape." 

While NSU's coaches feel 
that Thornton has a lot of 
work to do on his blocking and 
timing, they also agree that 
'he's one of the best when he's 
got the football in his hands." 

"Sidney has tremendous 
balance and he's such a strong 
runner," Emmons says. "He's 
also got the_ speed to break the 

long one." 

Thornton's 152-yard game 
gave him 264 yards on 44 
carries - an average of 6.0 
yards per carry. He's also 
scored four touchdowns this 
season, including one on a 63- 
yard punt return 

Some Demon fans are 
already saying that Cage and 
Thornton are the best two 
running backs every 
assembled in the same NSU 

The pickin' percentage stayed over the .800 mark for the 
third consecutive week, with a formchart finish of 36 right 
and eight messups for a .818 tally. The showing brings the 
season totals to 205-50, and .804 percentage.

Yoga - the trip back to body 

By Debby Lee 

We're going back to our bodies — 
listening to them and paying them new 
respect. We're experiencing a physical 
renaissance; we're re-discovering the 
primitive senses. 

In this rising tide of 
consiousness we witness the 
joys of handicrafts, organic 
getting body, soul, mind and matter 
back into harmony. Helping to 
harmonize the relationship between 
mind and body is the practice of yoga. 

Yoga is a physical and mental 
discipline, the goal of which is to attain 

Westerners is that there are several 
systems of yoga, each with somewhat 
different processes for attaining 
Samadhi and union. Some of these 
forms of yoga are : bhakti or devotional 
yoga, jnana or intellectual, hatha or 
body physical yoga, and karma or 
tactile realization through action and selfless 
diets, service. 

This third focus, often called the 
Witness only observes and notes. It 
does not evaluate or judge actions. The 
idea behind the Witness is that 
gradually one will break off 
identification with his roles and live 
calmly in them, thus becoming One 
with Krishna, God, or whatever.

Yoga meditation requires making the 
mind concentrate and center on only 
one thing. When concentrating on an 
object or a sound, begin slowly, 
concentrating intensely for 30 seconds 
rather than three minutes in a 
disconnected fashion. Choose any 
object or sound to fasten the mind on

Boosting ERA 

The League of Women Voters of the United 
States is launching a national Equal Rights 
Amendment ratification campaign this fall, aimed 
at increasing public awareness of the ERA. 

The Equal Rights Amendment, already passed 
by Congress, is now up for ratification by 
individual states. The amendment states, 
"Equality of rights under the law shall not be 
abridged or denied by the United States or by any 
state on account of sex." 

The first part of the ratification campaign is the 
sale of an ERA bracelet, a nickel silver band 
engraved with the letters "ERA." The bracelet 
sells for $3 and can be worn by both women and 
reformed male-chauvinists. Proceeds from the 
sale of the bracelets will go toward getting the 
amendment ratified. 

Orders accompanied by a $3 check or money 
order (plus postage), may be sent to: League of 
Women Voters, 11313 Frederick Avenue, 
Beltsville, Md. 20705.

Near the three stately 
columns which are the only 
remains of the Old Bullard 
Mansion, stands one of the 
oldest buildings on this 
campus - Caldwell Hall. 

According to legend the 
ghost of a beautiful young 
French maiden, who once 
lived in the old Bullard 
Mansion, dwells within the 
hallowed halls of Caldwell. 
Legend has it that the young 
maiden had many suitors, but 
the one she preferred was a 
man from the east sent to 
Louisiana on business by his 

The two fell deeply in love 
and became engaged, but the 
man was killed in a duel of 
honor, which it was said in- 
volved another woman. The 
death of her lover caused the 
young maiden to become so 
depressed and disconsolate 
that her deep beauty began to 
fade away. 

The beautiful young maiden 
was rarely seen after the 
death of her beau, but would 
occasionally take a walk 
outside among the trees where 
some say she had a ren- 
dezvous with the ghost of her 
dead lover. Some others 
simply believed that she was 
so grief stricken that she 
became mad. 

Perhaps the burden of her 
lover's death was just too 
much for her to bear, for one 
night while a violent storm 
raged outside the old mansion 
she crept upstairs to the attic 
and plunged a dagger into her 
heart. As she removed the 
knife from her body, a flow of 
blood stained her hand. In 
collapsing, her hand brushed 
against the wall imprinting

the bloody hand there. She 
was found the next day with 
the dagger by her side and the 
imprint of the blood-stained 
hand on the wall beside her. 

For quite a number of years 
the spirit of the raven-haired 
beauty roamed through the 
dark musty rooms of the 
mansion, and many people 
reported catching a glimpse of 
her white-robed figure flit- 
tering among the trees at 
night. It is reported that when 
the mansion was finally 
wrecked, the cries of the ghost 
could be heard for long 
distances as she wept over the 
destruction of her home. 

After her forced eviction 
from the mansion the spirit 
lived at various spots on the 
campus. It is interesting to 
note that most of the alleged 
home buildings of the ghost 
are also the oldest buildings on 

campus. East Hall was hi 
dwelling until it was torn down 
in 1932. Following this, the 
spirit moved into the old 
music hall. She lived there for 
some 14 years until it too, was 
demolished in 1946. 

After leaving the music hall, 
she roamed aimlessly around 
the campus. Reports state 
that many students claimed 
that they had seen her. In 1964 
she was reportedly seen 
dancing in front of Bienville 
Hall which then was the 
cafeteria for the college. She 
must have become weary of 
being homeless, however, 
because she finally moved 
into Caldwell Hall which is her 
present residence. Some say 
that her handprint, still tinted 
with blood, can be seen at 
times on the walls in that

Theta Chi colony earns 
national chapter status 

by Paula Seago 

NSU's Theta Chi colony 
became Louisiana's first 
colony of Theta Chi to achieve 
chapter status Saturday, Oct. 
13. The local colony was 
initiated into the national 
organization as Eta Omicron 
chapter of Theta Chi. 

The day consisted f a 
reception at the Theta Chi 
house on Greek Hill, an in- 
stallation ceremony which 
was held at the BSU chapel 
and a post installation at the 
Theta Chi house. 

A banquet was held in the 
Student Union Saturday night. 
A party for the fraternity 
followed the NSU football 
game at the Shriners' Club. 

Among the dignitaries 
present at the ceremonies 
were George T. Kilavos, 
national president; and 
Howard Alter, executive 
director. Theta Chi members 
and guests from three 
chapters and one colony, 
distinguished alumni and 
university guests also at- 
tended the ceremonies. 

Speaking at the banquet 
Saturday were Kilavos, Alter, 
Dr. Arnold Kilpatrick, 
president; Dr. C. B. Ellis, 
sponsor; Dr. Richard 
Galloway, vice president of 
student affairs; and Fred 
Bosarge, dean of men. 

The national organization of 
Theta Chi was founded by 
Frederick Norton Freeman 
and Arthur Chase in 1856. 
Since then Theta Chi has 
grown to include 176 un- 
dergraduate chapters with 
over 75,000 members. 

Eta Omicron chapter of 
Theta Chi originated in 1967 
with ten men who were 
dissatisfied with fraternities 
on the NSU campus. Char- 
tered by the college as Tri 
Delta Sigma fraternity, they 
established themselves and 
proceeded to find a national 
fraternity whose principles 
closely suited the ideas and 
principles they had 

established for their group. 

After careful consideration 
sf many fraternities, they 
decided on Theta Chi. The 
colony was established on 
Dec. 13, 1969, with 13 mem- 
bers. Work began im- 
mediately to obtain chap-

DILIGENT PRACTICE — Gloria Dyer and Richard Hooter spend 

approximately 18 hours a week practicing for the rifle team matches. 
They work out between the hours of 1-5 p. m. in the afternoon and 6-8 p. 
m. at night. 

Gray Ghosts practice 
for upcoming matches 

The Gray Ghost Rifle Team, 
made up of seven men and 
eight women, has scheduled 
five matches to take place in 
Louisiana, Kansas and Texas 
for the 1973-74 firing season. 

Sponsored by the Depart- 
ment of Military Science, the 
rifle team will open its season 
Oct. 27 at the University of 
Texas at Arlington. This will 
be followed by a match Nov. 3 
at McNeese in Lake Charles. 
On Nov. 17 the rifle team is 
entered in the Fort Polk 
Regional Matches in 

During the spring term, the 
team will participate in the 
University of Texas at Austin 
Invitational Matches, Jan. 23- 
25. The final scheduled match 
is the Fifth U. S. Army Mat- 
ches at Fort Riley, Kansas, 
March 15-16. 

These matches are by no 
means the only matches the 
team will participate in. 

Each rifle match involves 
firing at a series of targets 
with a 22 caliber rifle from a 
range of 50 feet. The rifleman 
assumes three positions, 
standing, kneeling and prone, 
and shoots at the target. 
Points are then tallied with the 
highest possible score being 
100 points. 

Each member of the team 
spends approximately 18 
hours a week in practice, but a 
match involves only about 45

Rouge-Because of the newspaper shortage, 
the Louisiana State University student 
newspaper, The Daily Reveille, will switch to 
telephone directory paper next semester. 

The staff anticipates jokes about the use of 
yellow paper besides the white, but hope to 
subdue "yellow journalism" jokes with the 
use of purple ink to represent school colors. 

As the editor Rusty Rein puts it, "It's an 
experiment for next semester, because we 
don't have any paper for next semester." 

A law student at Louisiana State 
University has filed a $50,000 suit against 
Charles Giamanco, a restaur anteur who 
allegedly served the student's date a sour 
flounder Aug. 3. 

A law student, Robin Poirier, said he sent 
the flounder back, but charged that 
Giamanco used loud language and struck him 
in the resulting dispute. 

The case has been assigned to Dist. Judge 
FJvin Ponder. 

Mc Neese State University, Lake 
Charies-McNeese Student Senate gave its 
approval to the Homecoming Committee to 
spend approximately $800 on souvenir 
doubloons. The doubloons will be distributed 
during the Homecoming Parade. 

Opposition was made on the basis that the 
money could be spent on a worthier project 
and that $800 was an excessive cost for 
novelties that were just to be thrown to the 

Last year's parade and the crowds drawn 
by the colorful doubloons were cited as 
reasons for the appropriation. The motion 
passed in a very divided vote.

Officials say -- 'Buckle up 

by Anne L'Heureux 

Regardless of how the car 
buyer might feel, the 
government has passed a law 
requiring all 74 automobiles 
to be installed with some type 
of passenger restraint system. 
In most cases this is a 
movable shoulder harness and 
seat belt combination. 

In older models a seat belt 
was included with a warning 
buzzer, but there were ways to 
"trick" the system. The 
shoulder harness has always 
been optional until now. In the 
74s the shoulder harness and 
seat belt are combined as one 
unit. The passenger must 
wear both or be nagged to 
death by the warning light and 
buzzer which are also a 
government requirement. 

The proper way to start a 74 
car is to get in the car, buckle 
up, and then turn on the 
ignition. The front seat 
passenger must also buckle up 
or the car will not start. Any 
deviation from this procedure 
will touch off the system 
which is wired into the 
ignition, and prevent the car 
from starting. 

If the proper sequence has 
been followed and the car still 
does not start, there is a by- 
pass button located under the 
hood which will allow the 
driver to start the car in an 
emergency and temporarily 
disconnect the system. 

New car owners have just 
begun to delve into the 
mysteries of the system in 
hopes of discovering some 
way to dismantle it. Car 
dealerships could help out in 
this area but any dealership 
caught revealing to its 
customers a way to disconnect 

the system will be confronted 
with a $10,000 federal fine. 

The new car owner should 
not be too dismayed with this 
information because there are 
still other avenues of escape. 
The belt can be hooked behind 
the passenger after he has 
seated himself, but he must go 
through the buckling 
procedure each time he gets 
into the car. It can't be kept 
buckled as in the past because 
it will run down the battery as 
well as set off the buzzer 

All motor companies have 
designed their own systems to 
fit government specifications, 
but they are all basically 
alike. The added cost of the 
system to the price of the 
automobile lies in the ap- 
proximate area of $50-75. 

The harness has been im- 
proved and allows freedom of 
movement for the wearer 
except when the car slows 
down quickly or if there is a 
sudden impact during normal 
use. When this happens, the 
shoulder retractor 
mechanism will automatically 
lock and hold the wearer 
against the seat. 

The Effect 

How has the system affected 
the sale of new cars and what 
is the reaction to the govern- 
ment restriction? Babin 
Motors in Jonesville reports 
that it is not a very popular 
thing with the public, but it 
will probably be to their good. 
At first customers are very 
impressed with the 74s until 
they learn of the belt system 
and immediatley ask, "What 
do you have in a 73"? 

G. D. Babin, owner of Babin 
Motors, said that there were

Front & Trudeau Sts. Phone 352'

more orders than usual for 
73s. "The 73s are moving 
better than usual for a new car 
month. I have had the largest 
number of new sales for 
September since 1939". Babin 
feels this is partially due to the 
seat belt requirement. 
However, he thinks that there 
is no big problem with 
buckling up. 

Tom Elkins, sales 
representative for Daray 
Motor Co., Inc. in Nat- 
chitoches, states that there 
appears to be no decrease in 
the sale of new cars. He does 
admit that the 73s are in 
popular demand but he also 
added that the 74 car sales 
have not slowed down in the 

According to Elkins 45,000 
persons in the United States 
are killed each year in traffic 
accidents. "We could save 
12,250 lives, which is a third of 
the total fatality rate, if people 
wore their seat belts". 

Both Babin and Elkins have 
come across the comment, "I 
guess IH get used to it." This 
statement seems to sum up 
public sentiment. No one is 
actually in favor of govern- 
ment intervention, but yet, 
there doesn't appear to be any 
satisfactory solution to the 
problem. New car owners 
must suffer a slight period of 

The government has been 
closing in on the motor in- 
dustry with such 
requirements as the anti- 
pollution device, which only 
hinders the total performance 
of the car. What started as a 
slight squeeze on motor 
companies has worked into a 
tight grip as the government 
continues to pile on the 
requirements and 
specifications; the passenger 
restraint system being the 
latest piece of legislation. 
What next?

Homecoming has moved up a notch 
this year with the traditional activities 
expanded to satisfy an increased influx 
of alumni, along with students and 
faculty, Nov. 3. 

The usual daytime game has been 
moved to an evening slot to make way 
for an afternoon of activities. Plans are 
now being finalized for guided tours 
through campus, open house for each 
college department, babysitting ser- 
vice and a Big Name Entertainment 
Series concert Saturday. 

Excitement is reigning among 
students, with the Greeks and campus 
organizations busy building floats for 
the morning parade. Twenty-two 
organizations have applied for float 
entries in the parade which will wind 
its way through campus and the 
downtown Natchitoches area.

manager of the newspaper. 

The committee will only look into the 
finances of the paper, Martin said, and 
all other complaints will be referred to 
the publications committee. 

The advertising sales of the paper, 
which are higher now than in previous 
years, according to Sanchez, and the 
$1.25 fee per student each semester are 
not meeting the increased expenses of 
printing the newspaper. There is also a 
$1700 debt incurred two years ago. 

"I think that certain expenditures 
from previous years require an 
evaluation. The legitimacy of at least 
some of these expenses needs to be 
examined," said Sanchez. 

Members of the committee are 
Martin, Paulette Hebert, Robbie 
Fowlkes, Vicki Prather, Doug Norris 
and Ronald Perry.

The law further states that bicycles 
should yield the right-of-way to 
pedestrians at crosswalks and that 
bicycles are to be ridden with the flow

Also, the bike, if used at night, should

Officials ponder food dilemma 
of nursing clinical students 

By Jackie Williams 

Several proposals are now being 
discussed to remedy the food service 
dilemma confronting NSU's nursing 
students in Shreveport, according to 
Bill Schwartz, director of housing. 

Schwartz and his staff along with 
John Radcliffe, cafeteria manager, 
have made three major proposals to 
solve the problem of an inadequate food 
service program for the nursing 
students in Shreveport. 

One proposal suggests additions to 
the current kitchen facilities in the 
dormitory. According to Schwartz, 
when the present dormitory was con- 
structed, it did not have any type of food 
or kitchen facilities. The dormitory, 
which houses over 120 girls, now has a 
large kitchen on the first floor and a 
small one on each of the other floors. 

The proposal dictates the addition of 
cabinets and cooking facilities, for the 
present kitchens. A problem con- 
fronting this proposal, he said, is the 
possible lack of funds. Schwartz says if 
this proposal is initiated it will not 
completely solve the problem, but it 
will make better facilities available to 
the dormitory residents. 

A second proposal is to hire a 
catering service to deliver food to the 
dormitory. Previously, Schwartz says, 
provisions were made through the 
university with Schumpert Hospital, 
located near the dormitory, to provide 
meals for the residents through the use 
of meal tickets. Due to their schedules, 
most of the students miss many of the 
meals served at the hospital. 

The catering proposal calls for meals 
being brought to the dormitory and 
purchased through the use of meal 
tickets. Schwartz stated that bids for 
the catering service will be taken from 
any interested Shreveport firm which 
meets the proper specifications. He 
said the proposed time for delivering 
the food would be Monday thru Thur- 
sday in the evenings. An objection to 
this method would be the possible ex- 
pense to the students. According to 
Radcliffe the catering service might be 
started next semester if the proposal is 

A third proposal is to construct a food 
service or dining faciltity in the dor- 
mitory. Radcliffe stated that 
besides adequate fund appropriations, 
a problem with the dining facility would 
be selecting an appropriate time to 
serve the meals, and in finding corn- 

enrollment would be necessary. 
Radcliffe estimated that the dining 
area could be completed and ready for 

petent personel to manage the facility. 

Schwartz commented that to justify 
construction of the dining or food 
service facility an increase in student use by next fall.

Work crews dredge Chaplin's Lake 

By: Rodney L. Chandler 

Supervisor of University Facilities 
Ted Wright has announced that 
dredging for removal of the aquatic 
growth in Chaplin's Lake has been 

The dredging operation began 
several weeks ago in front of the ROTC 
Armory and the workers gradually 
worked down the banks of the lake to 
the boat house. Wet weather and a 
limited work force hampered the 
operation according to Wright. 

"Perhaps the main reason for 
removal of the weed is to beautify the 
lake," he said. It was also dangerous 
for some people walking along the edge 
of the lake because the "real bank" 

could not be seen for the growth. 

Also mentioned as reasons for the 
operation were improvement of fishing 
and to keep the weed from completely 
taking over the lake. Wright said that 
fishing should improve since "tiny fish 
that live in the moss were easy prey for 
larger fish, and now that the weed has 
been removed the bass will have to look 
elsewhere for food." 

"A complete takeover was possible if 
the growth was not stopped from 
multiplying," he said. Wright could not 
classify the species of aquatic growth 
being taken from the lake and stated 
that dredging is the only solution for the 
problem at present. 

Wright also stated that the old posts 

T I 

where the "old swimming hole" used to 
be will be removed as soon as the work 
force has time. The swimming area 
was demolished this summer because it 
was rickety and life guards were never 
on duty. 

"The grass will be cut along the 
banks of Chaplin's Lake, if the weather 
permits, as soon as possible; I hope 
before homecoming." Wright stated. 
"We want to keep our lake as beautiful 
as possible." 

Several organizations on campus will 
be working on cleaning up the litter on 
the lake before homecoming this 
Saturday. Students are urged to put all 
litter in the trash barrles provided on 
the lake bank or take their trash with

Dr. Arnold R. Kilpatrick, Nor- 
thwestern president, is at home 
recuperating from surgery performed 
last Tuesday in Shreveport on his knee 
and hand. 

"He's getting along very nicely," 
said his secretary. "No problems; he's 
just uncomfortable." 

The president consulted a doctor in 
Shreveport who scheduled the surgery 
after an old knee injury began 
bothering him during the State Fair 
weekend. The operation on his hand had 
been scheduled for later on during the 
holidays but was moved up so that it 
could be done at the same time.

In line with contract specifications, 
the post office on campus does not

In response to questions about the 
post office operation, Freeman ex- 
plained that under a new contract 
negotiated in August, post office 
workers are classified under civil

each week. He also noted that mail is

fit takes one to Tango' 

By Dr. James Bartholomew 

Dr. Bartholomew 

on censorship 

Anyone who has read the 
Shreveport Times in recent 
weeks is aware of the furor 
created by the exhibition of 
the film, "Last Tango in 

Paris." Apparently several 
citizens of that community 
have grave questions con- 
cerning the legality and 
morality of showing the film. I 
shall not address myself to 
either subject here ; certainly 
they are important con- 
siderations, but they are not 
the real issue at stake. 

In its most recent decision, 
the Supreme Court has ruled 
that communities have the 
power to establish standards 
for films to be shown locally. 
The Court was wise in ab- 
juring from the field of cen- 
sorship, a field in which it had 
little if any competance, but 
its ruling compounded rather 
than simplified the problem. 
While the court, for the most 
part, was unable to make 

valid aesthetic judgment of 
films, it had, at least, a 
standard for evaluation which 
required the film to have 
artistic merit of a redeeming 
quality rather than an appeal 
to prurient interests. 

However one might quarrel 
with that standard, it at least 
furnished a guideline for 
judgment. Now the court had 
relegated this authority to 
some nebulous group in the 
community, which so far as 
can be ascertained, has 
established no standards 
beyond its own caprice nor its 
own credentials qualifying it 
to make valid judgments. 

The problem is not in- 
soluble, but it will remain 
unsolved until each of us faces 
the real issue: which of us is 

willing to let another person or 
group make our value 
judgments for us? This 
congenital right, for good or 
for ill, is the only real, 
unqualified freedom man has 
ever had, and it should be 
noted that he has maintained 
it throughout his history in the 
face of the most stringent 
tyrannies. Law and morality 
have, for the most part, 
rightfully controlled his 
outward actions, but no 
legislation has ever succeeded 
in controlling his private value 
judgments. I cannot conceive 
that man, now or in the future, 
will be willing to give up this 
right, indeed this respon- 
sibility, when no one else is 
capable of exercising it for 

An appearance and a disappearance 

Doggone, not another UFO! 

Halloween might be just another get 
rich-quick' holiday contrivance 
promoted by the candy manufacturers 
of America, but at least a segment of 
our adult population still clings to a 
fragmentary acceptance of the 
unknown. With the recent rash of UFO 
reports flooding the airways and 
newspaper columns, the following news 
items could conceivably filter out on the 
Associated Press wires and into 
national attention tomorrow night: 

(Natchitoches, La. - Oct. 31, 1973. 8 
p.m.)-"It was a bright, glowing orange 
sphere," said a frantic caller to the 
Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's Office 
late tonight, describing yet another. in 
the series of mysterious UFO sightings 
in this northwest Louisiana city. "I 
suppose there could be some earthly 
explanation, but it was there!" 

The caller, who refused to give his 
name or address to Natchitoches 
Parish authorities, claimed that the 
'ball of fire' landed in a wooded area 
near the Hwy. 1 bypass just north of 

Upon further investigation, the caller 
noticed that the spacecraft -a circular 
vehicle with various exterior carvings 
and engravings-4ield some form of 

alien life. 

"I was drawn to the flying 'whatever- 
it-was," the caller continued "and I 
definitely intend to establish a com- 
munications link." 

(Natchitoches, La.--Oct. 31, 1973. 9 
p.m.)- Another phone call to the 
Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's Office 
has yielded additional clues to the 
mysterious sighting of a fiery orange 
object just outside of town. According 
to the telephone informant, word has 
been received from within the UFO. 

"It spoke to me," the still nameless 
caller stated. "While I couldn't see 
what I assumed to be the main 
operational area from my outside 
vantage point, I definitely heard a low 
but audible voice directing me to en- 

(Natchitoches, La. -Oct. 31, 1973. 10 
p.m.)- Confusion continues with the 
telephone marathon existing between 
an anonomous caller and Natchitoches 
Parish officials over a reported 
sighting of a UFO near the Hwy. 1 
bypass. Another call from the 
distraught observer indicated that 
direct communication with the 
creature was imminent. 

"I've found the entrance to the 
thing," the frenzied telephone voice 
exclaimed. "I know it's crazy, but I'm 
going in!" 

Local and state authorities declined 
comment on this perplexing turn of 

(Natchitoches, La. -Oct. 31, 1973. 
lip.m.) - "I want to say just one thing 
before I enter that UFO," the local 
telephone informant related in this, his 
fourth such call to the Natchitoches 
Parish Sheriff's Office. "I don't know 
how this will all turn out, or what IH 
find, or even if IH ever come out alive. 
But I just want everyone to know-I've 
always been man's best friend." 

(Natchitoches, La.-Nov. 1, 1973. 12 
a.m.) - A missing persons bulletin was 
issued early this morning for a black 
and white beagle by a Mr. Charles 
Shultz. Shultz described the missing 
canine as "affectionate, if a little af- 
fected," and "on the human side," and 
reported that when last seen, the beagle 
was carrying a considerable amount of 
change and was searching for the 
nearest pay phone. 

The Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's 
Office admitted they have absolutely no 
leads on the case. 

'Give my regards 
to my alma mater 9 

K might be possible to gallop through a designated four-year college curriculum at a record- 
setting clip. It might also be possible to avoid involvement with all those extra-curricular 
activities that everyone insists are essential to total character development. It might even be 
possible to escape the acquisition of any appreciable increase of knowledge during one's 
college stay. 

But once the university diploma is bestowed, the college student becomes the college 
alumnus— and the Friday night beer busts become the alumni gatherings, the rush parties 
become the recruiting sessions, and the registration fees become the endowment pledges. 

A more concerted effort to involve 
Northwestern alumni with the university's 
functioning, and ultimately to reap the 
rewards of their financial backing and 
recruiting strength, is being instituted this 
year under the banner of Project TOP: 
Toward Outstanding Performance. Under the 
guidance of Dr. C. B. Ellis, newly-appointed 
assistant to the president, and Joseph N. 
Traigle, Louisiana Collector of Revenue, 
Project TOP is the first intensive fund-raising 
drive to offset the mounting financial woes 
plaguing state-supported institutions. 

According to Dr. Ellis, a first-year goal of 
$100,000 has been set for the program and a 
more systematic method of alumni 
participation is underway to insure continued 
support and interest. Saturday night's 
football encounter with the McNeese 
Cowboys, and the festivities surrounding the 
expanded Homecoming weekend, have been 
designated as the kick-off for the state-wide 

"The future of Northwestern," said Dr. 
Ellis, "depends on alumni support and alumni 
'word-of-mouth' recruiting. If we are going to 
be anything but an ordinary university, we 
must have contributions and support from 
Northwestern alumni and friends." 

Dr. Ellis emphasized that never before has 
Northwestern organized its alumni force 
and said 'we need your help,' but that Dr. 
Arnold R. Kilpatrick, Northwestern 
president, felt this added impetus was 
needed. "The difference between mediocrity 
and superiority in higher education is in the 
hands of the alumni," Dr. Ellis continued. 

Project TOP this year is accepting varying 
donations from Northwestern alumni with 
amounts designating honorary membership 
<n different alumni organizations. A 
contribution of under $100 entitles an alumnus 
to be a member of the Northwestern 
Foundation, a $100 or more contribution 
entitles the donor to be a member of the 
Demon Partner Club or Century Club, and a 
$1000 or more contribution gives membership 
in the Northwestern Champion Club. Dr. Ellis 
added that the response toward TOP's 
$100,000 goal has been good, and that many 

small contributions have added to the total. 

Along with their contributions, 
Northwestern alumni may designate one or 
more specific areas for which the money 
should be directed including academic 
scholarships, alumni honor professorships, 
faculty research activities, the athletic- 
Century Club, Watson Library, or other areas 
of need. The donations are tax-deductible. 

Dr. Ellis also stressed that alumni support 
would not be strictly restricted to monetary 
assistance, but that public relations work for 
the university and student recruitment 
responsibilities would also fall under the 
alumni goals. He stated that at present there 
are three Northwestern alumni clubs in key 
population centers throughout the state, but 
that there are enough Demon alumni 
members to establish at least 60 parish clubs 
in Louisiana. There are approximately 15,000 
Northwestern alumni and about 65,000 former 
students of Northwestern. 

According to Dr. Ellis, there are six 
regional TOP organizations coordinated 
under the state directorship. This TOP 
project is structured to maintain alumni 
support and interest, with a state-wide phone- 
a-thon slated for the week after Thanksgiving 
to contact alumni members for contribution 

This weekend's expanded Homecoming 
splash is an attempt to bring more 
Northwestern alumni back to the 
Natchitoches campus, and ultimately, to a 
more active participation in the university's 
alumni program. This renewed thrust toward 
the alumni support, the process of 
"converting the past Alumni Assn. into a 
viable force," according to Dr. Ellis, aims at 
supplementing state funds and student tuition 
fees for the rising costs involved in higher 

Northwestern State University, founded in 
1884, has had many students pass the Bullard 
columns which have come to represent the 
university. Through Project TOP, this 
resource is finally being tapped to upgrade 
and complement the quality of education

with "You are the Sunshine of My Life" and 
ended with "Soul Train." The dance contest 
was held while three members of the band 
adlibbed some half-hearted 'fifties' music, 
but most were disappointed not to hear any 
real be-bop music. 

The Centenary Student Senate sponsored a 
clean-up day Oct. 18. Hidden among the 
everyday trash were five pieces of 
"valuable" trash. To encourage student 
participation the Senate offered $5 apiece for 
the valuable trash - which Senate members 
tried to identify out of the bags of trash 
brought in.

LIB TAKES TO THE AIR — Mary Thomas, a 

sophomore Health & Physical Education major 
from Natchitoches, has recently received her 
pilot's license from the Natchitoches Municipal 
Airport. She is the third local female pilot to 
accomplish this, and hopes to begin work on a 
commercial license. 

"Reflections in the Water" 
will be the theme of the 
Neptunes' Christmas show, 
scheduled for Dec. 6 and 7 at 
7:30 p.m. in the Nesom 

The Neptunes perform 
synchronized swimming and 
water ballet stunts. The club 
also offers canoe trips, water 
polo, a Christmas show and 
fun. The Neptunes are 
sponsored by Dr. Joyce 
Hillard, director of intramural 

At present, the Neptunes 
consist of 15 female members. 
Men are not excluded from the 
Neptunes; in fact, men are 
needed to help perform cer- 
tain stunts. There is no age 
limit, but in order to qualify, 
one must have passed in- 
termediate swimming.

In Latin countries, Halloween is a solemn 
jligious occasion when people attend extra 
asses and say prayers. The American 
ebration rests upon Scottish and Irish folk 
^stoms which can be traced in direct line 

pre-Christian times. 
Although Halloween has become a night of 
Lbunctious antics, superstitious spells and 
Lfie games which people take only half 
fiously, its beginnings in Europe were quite 

1he earliest Halloween celebrations were 
id in Gaul by the Celtic order of Druids 
,ut the second century B. C. Hie ancient 
e s were conducted in honor of Samhain, 
fd of the Dead, whose festival fell on 
ivember 1. 

On this day, Samhain assembled the souls

For their sins these souls had been 
infined in the bodies of lower animals, but

The final incorporation of the pagan feast of 
Samhain into the Christian calendar was 
accomplished around the eighth century, and 
designated as Allhallows or All Saints' Day to 
honor all the saints of the Catholic Church. 
That the day chosen was one already 
associated with a thronging of spirits of the 
dead was quite in line with the church policy 
of incorporating harmless pagan folk ideas. 

In America 
Halloween did not find a place on the 
American calendar of holidays until after the 
Gaelic people began to arrive on these shores. 
With them came the Catholic observance of 
Allhallows and the folklore about which still 
clung shreads of the ancient feast of 

These later colonists began the custom of 
holding gatherings at the farmhouses on the 
night of Oct. 31, but it was not until the mid- 
1800's that Halloween really became a 
nationally observed holiday in the United 

Starry-eyed romantics, take heart, for 
Halloween is your night! 

From early times, Halloween has been the 
most favored day of the year for love- 
divination — a special time when prophetic 
spirits are most obliging to the curious girl or 
guy who wants to know the odds on his or her 
future love life. 

In an exclusive interview straight from her 
bubbling cauldron in a secret compartment 
of Warren Easton Hall, our very own Current 
Sauce Samantha has revealed a number of 
sure-fire recipes prepared especially for NSU 
students with lonely hearts. 

The following tested procedures have been 
awarded the coveted Current Sauce Seal of 
Approval and are being presented as a public 
service for your use on Halloween night.

gazing into the mirror. Spear the ninth apple :'. 
piece on the point of the knife and hold it -j 
over your shoulder. The apparition of your •*. 
future husband will come to take the apple •: 
section and his face will be reflected in the 
mirror beside your own. 

(2) Wrap a small amount of powdered j; 
dragon's blood in a piece of paper and throw it :i 
on a fire, all the while chanting, "May he no j: 
pleasure or profit see, till he comes back to j; 
me." (Appropriate only for a girl who has || 
just been jilted.) : 

(3) Go alone to a stream at midnight and • 
dip your left sleeve into the water. Return • 
home, take off your shirt and hang it up for ■ 
the sleeve to dry. During the night an ap- • 
parition of your intended will come to turn the • 
sleeve. Stay awake. : 

For Guys • 
( 1) Go to a kale patch, shut your eyes, grasp j 
a stalk and pull. If the stalk is tall and j 
straight, your wife-to-be will be healthy and j 
well-built. If the stalk is shriveled or crooked, j 

• you will marry a hunchback or a sickly • 
j person. If a good deal of dirt clings to the \ 
j roots, the marriage will be a wealthy one. If j 

• the roots come out bare and clean, your future j 
| spouse will be able to give nothing but love, j 
j Cut open the kale stalk and taste the pith . If j 
j it is sweet and tender, the mate will be kind j 
\ and gentle ; if it is sour or bitter, the spouse is j 

likely to have a very bad disposition. : 

j: (2) Scatter a handful of hempseed in a field : 
while saying this magical verse: "Hemp-: 
i seed, I sow thee, and her that is to be my lass j 
•! come after me and draw thee." A vision of j 
■: your future wife will come up behind you to • 

S reap the magically grown hemp. :•

many more than just one.

Set to run Thursday through Saturday at the 
Cane Theatre is "Charlotte's Web," an animated 
feature about the barnyard adventures of a pig

Dan McDonald .... Calling the Shots 

Demons looking to maintain streak; 
host Cowboys in homecoming battle j An open week : 

what NOT to do 

Homecoming 1973 will be 
celebrated by Northwestern 
State University next 
Saturday when McNeese State 
University's powerful 
Cowboys invade Demon 
Stadium in an attempt to 
break a five-year jinx. 

McNeese, which beat 
undefeated Troy State 
University Saturday night in 
Lake Charles, hasn't beaten 
Northwestern in football since 
1967 when the Pokes spoiled 
NSU's Homecoming 21-7. 

However, Northwestern 
ripped McNeese 28-12 in Lake 
Charles in 1968 and rallied for 
a spine-tingling 29-28 victory 
over the Cowboys in the 1969 
Homecoming game. NSU tight 
end Steve Gaspard made 
three spectacular pass 
receptions from quarterback 
Mike Pool on the winning 
touchdown drive in the '69 

NSU continued its streak 
over MSU the next year with a 
14-7 upset victory at Lake 

Then in 1971 McNeese en- 
tered Demon Stadium as the 
No. 1 college division team in 
the nation-undefeated and ...... 

untied. But the 'Pokes were 
knocked off their lofty perch :■: 
when NSU held McNeese to a :' : : 
3-3 tie in a game that was :•: 
played in the rain and mud. 

Last season Northwestern 
pulled another shocker in 
Lake Charles before 14,000 
partisan Cowboy fans with a 
25-10 victory. That NSU win 
narrowed McNeese 's edge in 
the overall series to 11-10-1 
since the inaugural game in 

The Demons, who have been 
working on fundmentals this 
week in practice with an open 
date, have a 4-3 overall record 
and a 2-2 Gulf South Con- 
ference mark. The game with jjj 
McNeese is a GSC designated § 
game. S

McNeese: Optimism 


looooooooooooeoooooo o o o eo omj . 

The average weekend for a sports writer, 
whose team happened to have an open date 
last weekend: 

McNeese head coach 
Jack Doland put his 
feelings on the line at the 
start of the season when he 
said that his 1973 edition of 
the Cowboys could be just 
as good as the 1971 squad 
which was undefeated 
during the regular season. 

Though they haven't 
gone undefeated this 
season, the McNeese squad 
will bring a record of 7-1 
into Demon Stadium 
Saturday night.

rushed for 458 yards on 111 
carries and caught 12 passes 
for 143 yards. He scored six 
touchdowns rushing. 

A co-captain and All-GSC 
halfback in 1957, Hennigan 
was probably more out- 
standing on the track for 
Northwestern. His 47.2 time in 
the 440 dash still stands as an 
NSU school record. 

A three-time GSC champion 
in the 440-yard dash, Hennigan 
also raced to a 21.3 time in the 
220-yard dash back in 1957. His 
times in the 440 and 220 were 
among the best in the nation at 
that time. 

But Hennigan didn't reach 
his peak until he signed a pro 
football contract with the 
Houston Oilers following his 
graduation from Nor- 

thwestern in 1958. Hennigan is 
not only considered the best 
receiver in Oiler history, but 
one of the best in pro football. 

A member of the American 
Football League All -Star team 
five times, Hennigan set AFL 
records for most passes 
caught ( 101) in a single season 
and most pass receiving yards 
(1,742) in a single season. 
Those two standards are still 
listed as National Football 
League records. 

Hennigan also caught 13 
passes for 272 yards in a single 
game for two other AFL 
records. His 52 touchdown 
receptions and more than 
6,000 yards in receiving are 
still listed as Houston Oiler 
career records. 

His brilliant pro career cut 

short by a knee injury in 1966. 
Hennigan received his doc- 
tor's degree in education from 
the University of Houston that 
same year. Previously, 
Hennigan received a masters 
degree from NSU in 1961. 

The former five-time All- 
AFL player, who led the Oilers 
to two AFL Football titles, is 
now president of Education 
Achievement Corp., which 
distributes career education 

Emmons, who has been 
offensive backfield coach at 

Northwestern since 1969, 
began his brilliant career at 
Mansfield High School. In his 
initial football game for 
Northwestern in 1948, Em- 
mons streaked 76 yards for a 
touchdown the first time he 
got his hands on the football. 

An All-GSC quarterback in 
1950 and an All-GSC safety in 
1951, Emmons' football career 
at NSU included numerous 
outstanding plays and games. 

His 80-yard pass to James 
Beck against Louisiana Tech 
in 1949 is the second longest 

pass play in NSU history and 
his 94-yard run with a pass 
interception against Lamar in 
1950 is the longest in that 

Emmons' best game was 
against Tech in 1949 when he 
completed nine of 18 passes 
for 220 yards and three touch- 
downs. In 1951 Emmons was 

was probably one of the best 
hitters to even step on the 
diamond for NSU. He had 
batting averages of .384 in 
1950, .458 in 195 ^ .350 in 
1953. His .458 average ' a 
school record that still stands. 
He also slugged 10 home runs 
in 1953. 
Emmons also won a letter in

His high school coaching

Flag playoffs begun 

Bernice ( 1956 to 1960), Homer 
(1961 to 1963) and Lake 
Charles High (1964 to 1968). 
His 1967 Lake Charles team 
marched to the Class AA state 
finals and fashioned a 12-2 
overall record. 

At Northwestern, Emmons 
has turned out outstanding 
players such as All-GSC 
fullback Richard Ware, All- 
GSC quarterback Mike Pool 
and All-GSC halfback Donald 

Walker, a member of NSU's 
GSC track champions in 1953 
and 1954, was unbeaten in the 
quart ermile his final three 
years at NSU. His 48.8 
clocking in the 440 in 1954 was 
a GSC record. He also an- 
chored the Demons' GSC mile 
relay title-winning teams 
three years. 

A recipient of the Raymond 
McFadden Outstanding Track 
Award his junior year, Walker 
came to Northwestern after 
starring in his school at Dry 

After his graduation from 
NSU in 1954, Walker coached 
one year at Many High School

His military duties have 
carried him to Baltimore,

on is shuffling my feet to get in

Northwestern defensive line 
Coach Jerry Arledge and 
Graduate Assistant Coach 
Jim Ethridge agree that Willis 
is an improved player over 
last year. And last season 
Willis was named co-winner of 
the team's most improved 
player award. 

Arledge stresses con- 
sistency to his defensive 
linemen and that's Willis's 
trademark. "He's one of our 
top graders defensively every 
game," adds Ethridge, "and 
he's averaging about nine 
tackles per game." 

Against Nicholls State, 

Willis was credited with eight 
tackles, including two behind 
the line of scrimmage. "Troy 
played a fine game and so did 
Mike Doherty (NSU's other 
defensive end)," Ethridge 

"He's a good player because 
of his quickness and hia 
strength," Ethridge said. 
"Troy uses his quickness on 
the pass and his strength 
against the run." 

Willis said the fact that 
everyone said NSU's defense 
wouldn't be as strong as its 
offense this year has made 
everyone work harder. Now 
just about everyone agrees 
that the Demon defense has 
carried the club despite a rash 

of injuries. 

"We've worked hard to 
prove that we're a good 
defensive team," Willis said,, 

"and I think the fact that 
we've had some guys play 
with injuries has inspired all 
of us."

A series of mass murders 
which claimed 62 lives in 
Lomsiana, Texas, and 
Georgia in 1911 and 1912 is 
analyzed in current issue 
of Northwestern State 
University's quarterly 
publication, "Louisiana 
Studies: An Interdisciplinary 
Journal of the South." 

Written by William Ivy Hair 
of the History Department at 
Florida State University, the 
article on the mass slayings is 
entitled "Inquisition for 
Blood: An Outbreak of Ritual 
Murders in Louisiana.

Hair states that most of the 
62 victims were mulattoes or 
light -skinned Negroes, and he 
concludes that, although the 
murder mysteries were never 
solved, most reports were that 
the killings were done by 
blacks whose religion told 
them that people of mixed 
blood were foul trees which 
had to be "hewn down." 

Many of the victims were 
mutilated, and some had 
their hearts cut out, Hair 
states. Most of the victims 
died of ax or hatchet wounds 
near the right ear, according 
to the article. 

The murderer or mur- 
derers, who were tagged in the 
newspaper at the time as the 
"Ax Fiend" and the "Black 
Jack the Ripper," left a note 
beside the bodies of five 
victims near Lake Charles 
which read, "When He 
maketh the Inquisition for 
Blood, He forgetteth not the 
cry of the humble - human 
five." This led many persons 
to believe, Hair said, that the 
slayings were the result of 
religious rituals.

1917 graduate donates 
books out of gratitude 

Murphy J. Sylvest, a 1917 
graduate of Northwestern 
State University, has donated 
his extensive private library 
to NSU's Eugene P. Watson 
Memorial Library. 

Sylvest , who attended 
Northwestern when the in- 
stitution was known as the 
State Normal School, operated 
for many years Sylvest 
Psychological Services in New 
Orleans and served as a 
psychological consultant 
before retiring last year. 

President Arnold 
Kilpatrick, who arranged the 
donation, said Sylvest ex- 
pressed appreciation to the 
university "because he was a 
disadvantaged youth, and the 
school gave him the foun- 
dation for a successful

professional career." 

President of the student 
body and an honor student at 
Northwestern, Sylvest later 
became director of the 
training school and of teacher 
education at Southeastern 
Louisiana College. During his 
career, he has counseled 
professionally more than 
10,000 persons. 

Donald MacKenzie, Nor- 
thwestern librarian, said the 
more than 300 books, mostly in 
the field of psychology, which 
Sylvest presented to the 
university "is an ex- 
ceptionally fine specialized 
collection in an area which the 
library is trying to develop."

Illuminating N.S.U.'s "N"

according to SBA Vice-

Conferring with Mr. Ted 
Wright, superintendent of 
university facilities, in the 
project to turn on the "N", it 
was discovered that due to the 
letter's dilapidated state, 
electricians from Shreveport 
must be brought in to rewire 
it. No date has been set for the 
rewiring, but Harrington 
stated, "We (the SBA)

During his years of graduate study in 
comparative literature, Segal 

itated that 
cheduled to 


published translations from various 
languages and pursued a part-time 
theatrical career. His first professional 
production was Sing Muse! presented 
off-Broadway in 1961-1962. His first 
scholarly article appeared in 1963. 

In 1964, Segal was appointed to the 
Yale faculty, where from 1968-1972 he 
was associate professor of classics and 
comparative literature. 

Roman Laughter, written by Segal 
for publication in the Harvard 
University Press, was the first in a 
series of publications to be presented by 
him to the American Philological Assn. 
and the American Comparative 
literature Assn. 

While teaching at Yale, Segal con- 
tinued his writing career. He 
collaborated with Richard Rodgers on a 
musical comedy. Though never 
reaching the stage, the comedy caught 
the attention of the Beatles who hired 
Segal to write the shooting script for the 
Yellow Submarine. 

Since 1968, when Yellow Submarine 
was released, Segal has written six 
films including Love Story , for which he 
received an Academy Award 
nomination, a Writer's Guild 
nomination and the Golden Globe 
Award for the best screenplay of 1970. 

In 1972, Segal covered the Munich 
Olympics for ABC television during 
which time ABC broadcast "The An- 
cient Games," a special written and 
narrated by Segal.

The proposed radio station for North- 
western must be voted on by more than 
1,500 students Wednesday in order to be 
approved by the State Board of 
Education, according to Shawn 
Tillman, program director for the 

"The State Board of Education will 
take a strong look at the interest shown 
by Northwestern students before 
making a decision on the facility. The 
only way they can do this is by checking 
the election results," Tillman said. 

The student referendum Wednesday 
offers a plan for an AM radio station to 
reach only on-campus until the Federal 
Communications Commission approves 
the FM radio project. The FM permit 
should take about 18 months, according 
to Mike Price, chairman of the project, 
and when completed would have a 
range of five miles. 

To finance the station, a student fee 
assessment of 50 cents each semester 
would be collected at registration. 

"We have spent more than a year on 
this project and that's a lot of time and 
money. This is no fly-by-night operation 
and all that is needed now is for the 
students to get out and vote," said 

Dr. Richard Galloway, vice president 
of student affairs, said, "The project is 
a good one as long as it benefits the 
students and that seems to be the goal it 
has in mind. The station will prove 
invaluable to the university community 
if it is geared to the likes of the 

All students may vote in the election 
but until an FM station is established, 
only the on-campus students will pay 
the 50 cent fee since they will be the 
recipients of the AM station. 

Jack Damico, SBA president, "The 
station will be very helpful with its 
public service announcements. At 
present we have to leave notes on doors

Equipment out-of-bounds for students 

Sparse audience hears 
constitutional delegates 

No more canoes, sailboats or other 
recreational equipment will be checked 
out for personal student use, according 
to Dr. Robert Alost, head of the 
Department of Health, Physical 
Education and recreation. 

He stated that if the checkout system 
would still be employed there would be 
no more equipment for the classes in 
which it is used due to the abuse of the 
supplies by the students. 

He also emphasized that state pro- 
perty should not be for personal use. 

The recreational equipment will be 
used only for classes and official 
university functions, Dr. Alost said. 

In a bill prefaced by almost 
a minute of silence before its in- 
troduction for consideration by the 
senate was seconded, the student 
representatives in the end jumped on 
the bandwagon and passed the measure 
13-4 to buy a color television set for the 
nursing students at Confederate 
Memorial Hospital in Shrveport. 

The strength of the bill is in for 
another test though with the veto of the 
proposal by SBA President Jack 
Damico. It takes three-fourths of the 
members to override the veto. 

Sponsored by senate clerk Nina 
Martin, the bill was supported by AWS 
president Mary Lynn Williamson who 
explained the discontent of the ap- 
proximately 80 students there. 

"They live in a raunchy dormitory 
that is not even air-conditioned," she 
said. "They pay Student Union 
Governing Board fees. They get nothing 
for it. They pay SBA fees and they 
receive nothing for it." 

The building in which the students 
live belongs to Confederate Memorial 
and so cannot be improved on by North-

Three delegates to the state Coa- 
*itutional Convention addressed an 
audience of a dozen people, including 
tour students and a single student 
8°vernment representative, last 
Tuesday night on campus. 
The three delegates, Don Kelly of 
Natchitoches, Richard Thompson of 
tolfax and Terry Reeves of Winnfield, 
e *plained constitutional proposals 
deeming the judicial, executive and 
kgislative branches of government. 
Proposals discussed included working 
toys for the legislature, election of 
H;es and the Superboard. 
The Superboard, the issue attracting 
•he college student's interest, currently 
re mains in committee. The two main 
froposals for organizing the Louisiana 
^cation system now being discussed 
delude one which would leave the set- 
-to the legislature and another which 
*°uld establish a superboard of ap- 
^inted officials with the State Board of 
^cation and the LSU Board still 
^act under them. 
The legislature has already devised a 
Verboard to take effect in July which 
Ma ces both the LSU system and other 
'ate colleges and universities under 
" le same governing board, 
beeves, who favors the proposal 
*h>ch would leave the decision to the 
*gislature, inferred that Gov. Edwin 
^ards also supports this plaa. He 
'ated that the constitution is "too 
^ e at" to divide the state between the 
^ system supporters and those of 
^er state colleges when the voters 
^ ci de the fate of the revised document . 
J'T'm not married to either side," said 
/%. Rep. Richard Thompson also 
^Pressed interest in cutting out 
^Plication of program offerings at the 
fcious state universities. "Let's cut 

out these small programs where there 
are just one or two faculty and have it 
offered at just one college. Let's give 
them a degree that means something 
when they graduate," he said. 

Concerning the working days of the 
legislation, Richard Thompson ex- 
plained that both houses would meet 60 
out of an 85 day period. An in- 
termediate period of 25 days would be 
allotted for various committee 
meetings if need be.Reeves stated that 
ages for membership to both houses 
was lowered to 18. Formerly 21 was the 
minimum age for the House and 25 for 
the Senate. 

Detailing the nitty gritty of the 
judiciary branch changes, Don Kelly 
mentioned the new policy concerning 
election of judges. At present the 
governor appoints interim judges to fill 
vacancies. Under the change, however, 
only the Supreme Court may appoint 
temporary judges for a six month 
period. Any judge appointed tem- 
porarily will be ineligible to run for that 
office in an election. Kelly stated that 
this change "makes for more of an 
election than is now." 

The convention is still bogged down in 
the controversial property tax 
provisions which threaten to split the 
members. The convention has already 
plodded through the issue of local 
government which met fiery debate 
before a liberalized home rule provision 
was passed. 

Asserting that the convention is not a 
mouthpiece for the governor or other 
special interest groups, Reeves said,

Galloway, vice president of student 

In separate cases, Nichols based his 
request on financial reasons and Dies 
presented a medical excuse. The cases 
were studied by student-faculty

the reasons did not meet State Board of

Discussion for the measure continued 
until a vote was called by Sen. Lindsey 
Torbett. Opposition to> the cutoff of

continue the discussion was passed. 
After more debate with each side un-

Again, it failed and discussion con- 

An impassioned plea was interjected 
by AMS president Tommy Damico who 
opposed the bill. "You've turned down

money). They do more than the regular 
student yet you kickedthem inthe face, 
now you want to buy these 80 girls a

lambasted Damico. 

Discussion continued on whether to 
give a color television or a black and 
white one. Tommy Damico suggested 
that the SBA buy a color television for 
College Manor apartments since there 
were students there who pay fees and 
don't have a set. 

The next call for question 
was passed and measure was okayed 
with only four dissenting votes. 

"The bill in my opinion destroyed a 
precedent we attempted to set last 
year," said' Jack Damico," that we are 
not a funding agency for small groups 
but we should fund other programs that 
would benefit the students as a whole. 

"If we would pass this bill I don't see 
how we could be consistent when other 
groups come to us. We are not 
neglecting the students at East Kings 
Highway. Maybe this matter should be 
referred to the Student Union Gover- 
ning Board." 


convention delegates, from left, Terry Reeves of Winnfield, Don 
Kelly of Natchitoches and Richard Thompson of Colfax, spoke on 
some of the provisions already ironed out by the group 
representing varied interests and attitudes toward what the new 
revised document should be. 

Council recommends tuition jump 

The nest egg vigilantly hoarded by 
anxious parents to pay for f hose four 
precious years of college oducation, 
may have to be piled a little higher in 
the near future. 

Three research teams, including the 
Louisiana Coordinating Council for 
Higher Education, have recommended 
that the dire financial situation of state 
universities requires a raise in tuition. 

The student attending college in 
Louisiana pays much less than other 
public institutions require, the council 
said, noting that this state ranks 47th 
nationally in the amount of tuition paid. 

"Even with a substantial increase in 
fees and tuition, a student attending one 
of Louisiana's institutions of higher 
learning would pay less for his 
education than a student in most other 

states in both the southern region and 
the nation," a finance committee of the 
council reported. 

The report further stated that the 
additional revenues could be used to 
improve the quality of instruction at 
state schools. 

Similar reports have come from 
national sources with the Committee 
for Economic Development, a non- 
profit research institute funded by 
business and foundations, recom- 
mending that tuition be more than 
doubled over the five years at public 
colleges. The Carnegie Commission on 
Higher Education warned that the 
survival of the state university systems 
is at stake and that the potion needed by 
all such colleges is an increase in 

Along with these proposals, the Nixon 
administration favors an increase in 
grants and loans to college students. 

Education presents the biggest bill 
each year accounting for a sizable 
chunk of tax revenue. Reports show 
that inflation and drops in enrollment 
have left universities struggling to 
maintain white elephant expansion 
programs. The CED report further 
stated that present tuition rates pay for 
less than one-fourth of the real cost with 
the difference made up by the state. 

The Louisiana Coordinating Council 
further warned, "This move should not 
be interpreted by the legislature as a 
valid reason to cut the already meager 
appropriations for higher education."

One More Idea 

By Ronald Sanchez 

A Christmas Carol 

In a premature holiday shopping spree, the 
student senate last week approved a bill calling 
for the purchase of a color television set for the 
East Kings Hwy. Nursing School in Shreveport. 
It seems that word from the North Pole (in this 
case, Shreveport) reached two of Santa's helpers 
(in this case, bill sponsor and senate clerk Nina 
Martin and AWS President Mary Lynn 
Williamson) that the girls at this clinical campus 
were missing out on all the extra-curricular 
activities that catch Natchitoches students in a 
frenzied social merry-go-round, and that some 
compensation factor was needed. The perfect gift 
for the occasion: a color TV. 

The senate apparently ignored several 
important considerations in their rather 
convincing 13-4 tally in favor of the expenditure 
According to sources, the East Kings Hwy. 
dormitory does not belong to Northwestern, and 
therefore campus Housing authorities will not 
purchase the desired set. The justification for the 
appeal to student government seems far-fetched 
at best. 

Also.this particular group is certainly not the 
only off-campus contingent which necessarily 
does not participate in the regular Natchitoches 
campus activities and benefits. As pointed out by 
one of the bill's detractors: When will the 
purchase order be sent out for the KA and Kappa 
Sigma television sets? These students residing in 
these fraternity houses are by location deprived 
of certain student fee-generated proceedings. And 
what about the students living in nearby 
apartment complexes (legally or illegally)? And 
what about the commuting student? Should 
these groups be ignored, too? 

Perhaps the most significant feature of this 
incredible example of over-indulgent generosity, 
though, is the dangerous precedent established. 
The senate, having money to work with and the 
mood to dispense it, was agreeable to this first 
request. At the time, a television set for the East 
Kings Hwy. girls seemed a noble gesture. But 
when the second - and the third - and the fourth - 
group applies for similar compensation, will the 
senate be as inclined to respond with an open 
Christmas gift sack? 

At this writing, speculation was building that 
Ebenezer Scrooge (in this case, SBA President 
Jack Damico) might use an executive veto to kill 
the whole Yuletide package. And what a twist of 
events, if this should come to pass: the first 
"Christmas Carol" in which Scrooge is portrayed 
as the hero! 

The Liberated Speaker Series 

As reported in the last issue of the Current 
Sauce, the Northwestern Distinguished Lecturer 
Series next year will include, upon orders from 
'above,' more representation from minority 
groups - this under the guise of a female speaker. 
According to a speaker series source, at least one 
Northwestern Administrative official has put 
down her (or his) foot for the women's liberation 
forefront with a demand for a 'weaker sex' voice. 

The Germaine Greer creed can be carried too 
far, and in this case, it apparently has been 
belabored beyond the point of recognitioa The 
speaker series this semester includes a minority 
party representative (Ramsey Muniz), a 
Faulkner authority (Dr. James Meriwether), and 
a celebrated author and professor (Erich Segal). 
Is feminine balance in this group an essential? If 
student preference polls indicate that an 
appearance by a noted woman speaker would 
enhance the series, then all attempts should be 
made to bring her to this campus. But including a 
female lecturer merely to placate the whims of a 
Northwestern administrator seems totally 
inappropriate. The speaker series, is, after all, a 
student function supported by student fees, and 
directed by students. Administrative policies 
should be left out of the matter. 

And as an afterthought: I wonder how this 
administrator can classify any group which 
comprises 50.4 percent of the world's population 
as a "minority' in the first place? 

The Case of Student Finance 

As outlined in the Northwestern student 
government constitution, the Student Financial 
Commission consists of 13 voting members, 
including the SBA president, the SUGB 
President, the treasurers of these two 
organizations, two representatives from these 
same two organizations, the editors and 
business managers of the Current Sauce and 

Potpourri, and the President of the Davis 
Players. The commission's expressed purpose is 
to review, and to accept or reject, budgets from 
organizations receiving monetary support from 
student fees. 

This might look fine in print, but there seems 
to be one slight snag. No one, most notably the 
Finance Commission members, know when or 
how or where the group is to meet (if at all), or 
what to do in the interim. 

With the fall semester drawing to a rapid close, 
it seems almost superfluous to budget and 
allocate money that has already been spent. But 
yet the Student Finance Commission will be faced 
with this dilemma when, and if, it does meet. 

It would appear reasonable to expect some 
safeguards to avoid the recurrence of this 
situation. The Student Finance Commission 
needs to meet - early in the semester ~ and to 
logically and carefully comb the budgetary 
proposals of the student organizations. At this 
late date, a haphazard and hurried glance at 
the budgets might be the only consideration the 
students will get in regard to their fee 



Students urge station suppOi 


Dear Editor, 
At the time of this writing, 
, the students of Northwestern 
are faced with an important 
decision. In tomorrow's 
election the Student Body 
Assn. will vote on a referen- 
dum to implement the 
financing of a campus radio 
station. This is not a new 
subject at Northwestern. In 
fact, the students have been 
saturated with an overflow of 
information concerning the 
station, but I feel its im- 
portance allows me to make a 
few pertinent observations. 

The establishment of a 
campus radio station has been 
thoroughly researched by the 
originators of the station and 
by your Student Government. 
As a result, organizational and 
operational structures have 
been set up for the student's 
best interest. Through these 
structures there can never be 
a misuse of the student's fees 

or the radio station by any 
group of students or by the 
administration. The student 
operators are held ac- 
countable to the student body, 
and the Federal Com- 
munications Commission. 

In my opinion, however, the 
most important aspect of the 
campus radio station is the 
unification of the student 
body. This station represents 
the first real chance that 
Northwestern has for an 
immediate information and 
communication source which 
would facilitate more 
awareness of student ac- 
tivities. It is my feeling that 
more awareness would, in 
turn, facilitate more student 
concern and participation in 
N.S.U. happenings. The 
station would allow the 
students to feel united and it 
would remind us of this unified 
identity each time we hear the 
call letters KNSU. 


faculty and students with 
holding equal footing. 

So I am taking this 
portunity to appeal to 
student body to get out an, 
vote tomorrow and vote 

Once we share this unified 
identity, we can make great 
strides toward the new 
directions we need to become 
a truly student-oriented 
university of the future. 

Northwestern needs KNSU for KNSU and a progrej, 
and I urge all students to vote Northwestern 
for its establishment 
tomorrow and help increase 
the student's voice and in-

...on Jesus 

When asked to write an 
article explaining what the 
Jesus Movement is about, it 
seemed almost impossible to 
limit it to an article. It was as 
though someone had asked me 
to write an article about what 
one could find in the library. It 
is very broad. It is not limited 
to Natchitoches or the United 
States, but it is happening 
around the world. The ex- 
perience is happening to all 
ages, all nationalities, all 
races, and all faiths-no one is 
excluded. The only way to be 
left out is for one to exclude 
himself. Young people seem to 
respond to the Holy Spirit 
more quickly because they 
have fewer hang-ups or 
inhibitions or prejudices. No 
man can stop it in spite of 
some men's objections. It is 
the one last harvest of souls 
before the return of Christ. 

The "Charismatic 
Renewal," "Jesus 
Movement," and "Jesus 
People" are some of the 
phrases related to the current 
outpouring of the Holy Spirit. 
It is a movement which adds 
to one's faith, one's walk with 
Christ. It is not a religion, but 
a relationship with Jesus 
Christ. It is not stimulated by 
man in his ecclesiastical 
system of churches and cults. 
Most all systems have sub- 
stituted the simplicity of Jesus 
Christ with complicated rules 
and regulations of man- 
catering to what is socially 

After a period of ignoring 
the joyful happening in inter- 
denominational prayer 
meetings, the ecclesiastical 
system of churches is 
beginning to take notice, 
trying to duplicate the 
satisfactions, the joy, the 
interest in God which radiates 
from these groups. Churches 
which have experienced a 
total release to the Holy spirit 
have been "booted out" of 
their organization affiliation. 
Sometimes individuals are so 
excited about finding the 
reality of God, they "come on 
strong" to share their truth, 
only to be asked to leave their 
church because of their 
zealousness for Christ-- 
frequently confused with the 
term "fanaticism"-defined as 
one who believes more in the 
almighty power of God than

Dear Editor, 

This Wed., Nov. 7, the

will be faced with an im- 
portant question : whether it is 
nobler to vote for and support

$.50 fee increase for on- 
campus students financing 
KNSU-AM-FM or to vote nay 
or not to vote at all and to 
prohibit a much needed facet 
of campus life, a campus 
radio station. 

The initial idea for a 
campus station was the 
brainchild of Mike Price, an 
electronics major, and a 
group of his equally qualified

well-organized proposal to the

A question 
of integrity 

On the first Tuesday of November, 1972— 
just 365 days ago-Richard M. Nixon gloried in 
his greatest political triumph. Thoroughly 
trouncing Democratic contender South 
Dakota Sen. George McGovern at the election 
pools, and proving his overwhelming 
popularity with the American voting populace 
with a solid 61 per cent backing, President 
Nixon won the mandate, and the confidence, 
of the people with his "Four more years" 

But something has happened in the past 
year. Name like John Mitchell , John Dean , 
Sam Erwin Archibald Cox , and Judge John 
Sirica focused national attention on a floun- 
dering presidency. A burglary-bungle and a 
botched cover-up known as Watergate 
threatened to unhinge the entire Nixon 

A public battle over the possession of 
presidential tapes became a key in the per- 
plexing turn of events. And the talk of im- 
peachment-an abrupt cancellation of the 
"Four more years" contract-circulated. 

There seems to be little question, though 
that President Nixon can cling to his "Four 
more years " plea. Impeachment 
proceedings against an already scandal- 
battered administration would appear almost 
an impossibility. But with the nation's 
integrity hanging in the balance-wouldn't a 
final resolution of the problem be in order? 
Maybe we shouldn't have Richard Nixon to 
kick around' any more.

now for spring, 1974. To be 
sponsored by AWS and taught 
by Pam, the course will in-

self defense techniques, with 
an emphasis on simple "hit 
and run" tactics for warding 
off personal attacks. 

"I think this type of course 
is needed at Northwestern," 
Pam said, adding that, "This

Pam is a sophomore from 
Leesville whose training in- 
cludes two karate courses 
which resulted in her brown 
belt in Shoryinru and her 
green belt in Kaju-Kempo

is one below a black belt, 
considered the highest level of 
achievement in the art, next to 
the rarely-attained red belt. 

The projected self-defense 
course would be free of cost to 
Northwestern coeds, and 
would probably entail once a

and-a-half hours each. Plans 
are that the sessions would be 
held in the women's gym-

Each dorm council has 
drawn up a list of the five or

These lists have been turned 
in to the AWS executive

according to Williamson. She 
added that she hopes to get all

The most popular items on 
the list were popcorn poppers,

Family interest 
Pam's interest in karate and 
self-defense is somewhat of a 
family affair, since several of 
her uncles have undergone 
training in karate. She has a 
16-year-old brother who has 
taken judo, and a younger 
sister and brother who receive 
occasional instruction from 
her in basic self-defense 

"I always did like this type 
of activity — it has a certain 
challenge to it," she con- 

Pam makes a distinction in 
karate and self-defense. Self 
defense is concerned with 
warding off threatening at- 
tacks, while karate is mainly 
techniques and styles. 

In getting the spring course 
off the ground, Pam an- 
ticipates that the first 
response may be small, but 
she feels that the number of 
participants will grow with 
time. If the program is suc- 
cessful here, she hopes to 
incorporate a similar self- 
defense course on the NSU- 
Shreveport clinical campus.

During the past seven 
months, not one formal charge 
has been lodged with this top 
court of the judicial branch of 
the Student Body Association. 

All judicial powers of the 
SBA are vested in the Student 
Court and the lower courts of

Martha Compton, chief 
justice of the seven-member 
court, feels that there may be 
many potential cases that 
students are simply not 
bringing up. "I am not 
idealistic enough to believe 
that NSU students never have 
any just grievances that they 
could bring before the court," 
she said. "I don' t 

know whether students fail to 
call on the court because they 
are not acquainted with the 
possibilities for its utilization 
or because they feel that it 
'wouldn't do them any good.' "

McNeese spoils Homecoming 

'Pokes shut off Demons, 14-0 

By Dan McDonald 
Sauce Sports Editor 
It's been said that the offense 
draws crowds and the defense wins 
ball games. 

Well, there was a big crowd, one of 
the largest night crowds in Demon 
Stadium history. If they were there 
to see the offense, though, they were 
most definitely disappointed with 
what they saw. 

A stiff McNeese State rushing 
defense completely shut off the 
Demon offensive attack, and used 
this shutdown to take a 14-0 win and 
spoil the Northwestern homecoming 

The 9,800 fans packing the stadium 
saw the NSU defense show signs of a 
rejuvenation back to the non- 
budging defensive play that carried 
the Demons to the Gulf South 
Conference championship and 
earned them a reputation as a 
defensive powerhouse. It was this 
defensive pride, after a multitude of 
injuries the past two months, that 
kept Northwestern in the ball game, 
because the offensive platoon was 
providing little assistance. 

It was a very uninspired effort by 
the offense, and the statistics 
showed it. The Demons could only 
muster 69 yards on the ground, 
normally the focal point of their 
attack. Mario "The Rage" Cage 
accounted for 64 of those yards, but 
even he was turned off by the tough 

In fact, the Demon air game was 
more productive than the ground 
attack, and you have to go a long 
way back to find another time that 
the pass was more ground-gaining 
than the run for Northwestern. 
Freshman quarterbacks Butch 
Ballard andStuart Wright accounted 

for 70 yards passing, much of that 
coming late in the game when it was 
almost meaningless. 

In fact, the only statistic that 
Demon fans can look to with pride 
came in the punting category, where 
Randy Walker shook his season-long 
slump in grand style. Randy, a 
senior from Bossier City, boomed 
nine punts for a record 454 yards and 
averaged 50.4 yards a try, another 
new mark. The efforts bettered the 
marks of his older brother Wayne, 
who booted for 394 yards against 
Northeast in 1965, and the 50.4 mark 
broke Randy's own record of 49.1 set 
last season against Delta State, also 
in a homecoming game. 

His booming spirals were big 
factors in the defensive effort, for it 
seemed that the McNeese squad was 
constantly keeping pressure on the 
defensive unit. 

It was apparent from the start that 
Northwestern was in trouble. The 
Cowboys took the opening Mckoff 
and picked up a first down to the 
Demon 32. From there, on the 
second play of the game, qu- 
arterback Johnnie Thibodeaux 
faded back and lofted a bomb in the 
direction of fleet split end Gary 
Broussard. Broussard got behind 
Demon safety Skipper Morgan and 
hauled in the pass at the 20, not to be 
touched as he went the remaining 
stripes to cap the 68-yard strike. 
Conley Hathorn's extra point was 

After a break of a quarter while 
the teams were recovering from that 
initial shock, the Cowboys came 
right back and drove from their own 
32 to the Demon 22. From there 
Thibodeaux faked a handoff and

ROUGH GOING-No rth western tailback Mario Cage (27), a 
potent force in the Demon running game, picks up scarce 
yardage in Saturday night's Homecoming encounter with the 
McNeese State Cowboys. McNeese prevailed for a 14-0 
victory over the faltering Demons. 

found tight end Nathaniel Allen 
across the middle. Allen shook 
defenders as he went the rest of the 
way to paydirt, and with 
Thibodeaux's two-point conversion 
pass to Lee Duplichan, the Cowboys 
went into the locker room with the 14 
point margin. 

That turned out to be all the 
margin necessary for the 'Pokes, as 
the Demons were destined to be shut 
out for the second time this season. 

For the record, this is the first 
time since 1959 that a Northwestern 
team has been shut out twice in one 

The loss evens the Demons' 
overall record at 4-4 and, as the 
contest was a designated Gulf South 
Conference game, drops the record 
in the loop to 2-3. McNeese ran its 
record to 6-2 on the season. 

The Demons travel to Lafayette 
next Saturday to do battle with the 
Ragin' Cajuns of Southwestern 
Louisiana. One of the oldest rivalries 
in the South, the game will be the 
64th meeting of the two teams in a 
series that dates back to 1909. 

The two teams are even at 30-30 
with three ties in the series.

The Demon harriers see 
their next action on the 
national level a week from this 
Saturday, as they will travel 
to Salinas, Kansas, on Nov. 
17 for the NAIA National 
Championships. They earned 
the right to represent this 
district at the national meet 
with their resounding victory 
in the District 30 qualifying 
meet here two weeks ago. 

Just talking about anything and everything 
that comes to mind: 

In case you haven't heard, two of McNeese 
State's starting football players were dropped 
from their squad last Friday morning after 
their arrest on drug possession charges. 

Tailback Barry Boudreaux of Morgan City 
and defensive safety Jack Bruce Blackletter 
of Lake Charles were dismissed from the 
team and removed from athletic scholarship 
after Calcasieu Parish deputies arrested the 
two Thursday night for possession of 
marijuana in their dorm rooms. 

Coach Jack Doland said that the McNeese 
athletic department "has an iron-clad rule 
against violation of drug and narcotics 

Coach Doland and the athletic staff at 
Cowboy land are to be praised for their 
forceful and positive handling of a potentially 
touchy situation. The prompt moves by the 
department should serve as a warning to 
other athletes in the state. 

I can't help but think that the situation 
would have been handled differently at other 
schools. It's like the joke that was going 
around the campus last week : "If they 
had been from someplace like Tech or USL, 
they would have been out of jail, cleared of 
the charges, put back on scholarship, and in 
the lineup Saturday night." 


Speaking of Louisiana Tech, the NCAA 
Infractions Committee has placed the 
Bullodgs' basketball program on a three-year 
probation, according to reports issued last 
week. The reports stated that Tech's 
probation was imposed for cash payments 
"under the table" to former star cagers 
Charles Bishop and Mike Green. Scotty 
Robertson, head basketball coach, was also 
placed on probation, according to the report. 

The three-year setback covers only the 
basketball program, football not being in- 
volved. The report said that the roundball 
squad, always a power in the Southland 
Conference, is now ineligible for cham- 
pionship honors for the length of the 

This recent action means that three schools 
in the state are on probation with the NCAA: 
Southwestern, McNeese, and Tech. Oddly 
enough, all three schools are members of the 
Southland Conference. 

Is the building of a successful program 
worth it if a school has to take such extreme 
measures as illegally recruiting players and 
making payments to athletes? It's definitely 
not worth it if a school gets caught. Look at 
USL's basketball program and how it is at a 
near collapse. 

If all of these probations is the price of 
success, it surely is a high price to pay. 

bowl games is 6 pjn., Nov. 17, a Saturday. 
Bowl officials will have to be doing some 
pretty good guessing this season, because a 
lot of the teams will still have several games 
left on their schedules. 

Now that LSU had destroyed Ole Miss to 
remain undefeated, they are in an excellent 
position to bargain for a major classic. And it 
is obvious that the bowls will not wait and see 
what happens later in the season before ex- 
tending invitations. 

If one bowl doesn't hand out invites on that 
date, they run the risk of letting all the other 
bowls get the best teams. Good ball clubs are 
not going to wait for one particular bowl if 
they get a half decent offer, because they 
don't want to be left out of the entire picture 
(a la LSU, 1969). 

The Tigers won't play again until the night 
of the 17th and it's a sure bet that they will 
have a bid by then. But who? 

The Sugar and Orange Bowls are probably 
after Alabama and Notre Dame, two more 
undefeated powers. Both could easily go into 
the Jan. 1 battles with perfect records (well, 
not easily, because 'Bama still has to get by 
LSU in the Snake Pit Thanksgiving night). 

Since Oklahoma can't go to a bowl this 
year, and USC, UCLA, Ohio State, and 
Michigan are battling for Rose Bowl berths, 
this leaves several openings in the southern 
bowls for LSU, Penn State, Tennessee, and 
Houston. _ 

A great number of rumors will probably 
start flying around this week, but nothing 
definite will be decided until a week from 
Saturday-and maybe later. 

oooooeeo o eeooooeeo c 

NSU may have been given a raw deal down 
at the GSC Cross Country Championships last 

Thdy called it cross country,' it was more 
like a road race. It had to be the first cross 
country meet run on a highway. It was 
common knowledge that the Demon team 
performed better on a rough, hilly course, 
such as the one here where they won the 
District 30 NAIA title, Also, the course was 
shorter than ideal for the local harriers, as it 
was only about four miles in length. 

This is not to offer excuses, but is a plea for 
some sort of standardization of cross country 
courses. The home team at such a cham- 
pionship meet selects the course, and, ob- 
viously, they pick it with their own team in 

Maybe a neutral site would be better for 
such a meet, with the course selected by 
conference officials. At least men the runners 
wouldn't have to worry about being run over 
by automobile traffic on the course, as was 
the case last week.

I though somebody once said that this prediction business 
would get easier as the season wore on. The teams would be 
more consistent, and not as many early surprises would be 
pulled off. 

Well, whoever made that statement really blew it, as 
evidenced by our showing from last week. The final tally was 
a rather disheartening 30 right and 12 misfires for a 
percentage of .714 (gulp), dropping the eight-week totals to 
267-73, a .785 tally.

Senate again okays 
TV bill after veto 

FIRST PIECE OF EQUIPMENT— Raymond Morrison (left) and 
Gary Lambert work on an automation system donated by local 
businessman Russell Duty which will be worked into the radio 
station's operation in order to provide 24-hour music. 

After another session of heated 
debate concerning the purchase of a 
color television set for the NSU nursing 
students at Confederate Memorial 
Hospital the student senate overrode 
veto of SBA President Jack Damico 
okaying the measure 11-4. 

Sponsored by senate clerk Nina 
Hartin and AWS President Mary Lynn 
Filliamson, the bill had previously 
passed the senate but was vetoed by 
Damico who said the project initiated a 
costly precedent. 

Supporters of the bill asserted that 
the nursing students under a new two- 
program are required to live in 
second-rate dormitories and have no 
lervice provided them with their 
tudent fees. 

About 80 girls are under the associate 
degree program in Shreveport which 
was only recently placed under the 
of Northwestern. The 
Pij miversity does not own the dormitory 
and the housing department could not 
Archa«|make the purchase, Williamson said. 
Opponents of the bill argued that the 
may be justified in wanting a 

television, but that it was not the place 
of the senate to provide it. 

"They live under housing rules; they 
have to live where they do. It's 
housing's responsibility," contended 
Sen. Carol Doolan. 

"The SBA has tried to divorce itself 
from the entertainment business," said 
Damico. He stated that the girls were 
paying only $2.75 to the SBA while the 
Union fee was $9.25. He suggested that 
maybe the matter should be referred to 
the Union Governing Board. 

The main argument given by Damico 
was the precedent the bill set. "You say 
we have plenty of money, so why not 
spend it. Well, a couple of the years ago 
the Current Sauce had plenty of money 
and the Potpourri had plenty of money. 
In my opinion, it (the bill) would start a 
precedent that we can't afford." 

Cost of repairs and maintenance 
would be taken care of out of their AWS 
fees, according to Martin. 

Voting against the bill were Lindsey 
Torbett, Jimmy Anderson, Carol 
Doolan and Diane Mclnnis.

years to obtain permission for the sale 
of beer and wine on campus is now 

Student support for the issue is being 
solicited through a petition which will 
be presented to the State Board of 
Education. The SBA State Board ap- 
peals committee is sponsoring the 
petition today from 1-5 p. m. and 
Wednesday and Thursday from 8 a. m. 
to 5 p. m. in the lobby of the Student 

Purpose of the petition is to "give the 
individual student of our university a 
chance to voice not only his desire to 
purchase and consume these beverages 
in specified areas on campus, but also 

to register his discontent on the con- 
stitutional inequality practices against 
our university community," said a 
statement from the appeals committee. 

Schools under the LSU system, 
Nichols, McNeese and the University 
of Southwestern all have different 
versions which allow the sale of some 
liquors on campus. 

The petition will be included in the 
proposal not yet completed which will 
be presented to the State Board 
probably early next semester. 

Students wishing to sign the petition 
will be required to have a current L D. 
Pn!l workers will check off the student's 
name so that only resistered students 
will be able to sign, and signatures will 
be made only once. 

We, the undersigned students of Northwestern State University, being of 
voting age in the State of Louisiana and the United States of America and 
therefore deserving equality of the laws and equal privileges as of other 
citizens of this State and Nation and 

WHEREAS several other Louisiana State Universities have the privilege 
to sell beer and-or wine in specified areas of their campus, and 

WHEREAS the laws of the City and Parish of Natchitoches do not prohibit 
sale of these beverages in their jurisdiction; 

THEREFORE WE PETITION THAT our rights as citizens be upheld and 
that we may have the right to purchase the above alcoholic beverages on 
our campus, if we should so desire. The fore mentioned right would be 
limited to designated areas and following the rules and regulations set 
forth by the proposal submitted to the Louisiana State Board of Education, 
by the Student Body Association of Northwestern State University. 

Homecoming court selection changes 

A bill which will attempt to change 
the method of selecting the 
Homecoming court was approved by 
the student senate Monday night. 

Sponsored by SBA president Jack 
Damico, the bill calls for the establish- 
ment of a committee appointed by 

Damico and NSU president, Dr. Arnold 
Kilpatrick which will work out the new 
selection procedure. 

The bill states that the "Homecoming 
court represents the entire student 
body but its selection is limited to only a 
small percentage of students, therefore 
causing a loss of student privileges." 

With the overwhelming student 
approval of the campus radio station in 
an election last Wednesday, the 
initiators of the project are now 
preparing their presentation for the 
State Board of Education for the needed 
FM station ratification. 

Northwestern students voted 1,286 to 
86 for the AM station which will 
hopefully be changed to an FM 
frequency later. The FM station, 
though, must be approved by the State 
Board and the Federal Com- 
munications Commission. 

The State Board presentation will 
probably be made at the December 
meeting, according to chairman Mike 
Price, who is confident approval will be 

"I think we got enough people (who 
voted) to convince them," Price said. 
The turnout of 1,372 students in last 
week's balloting was large in com- 
parison to other campus elections. 

The AM facility is expected to be in 
operation sometime during the spring 

The group is now waiting for word 
from the Attorney General's office 
whether bids must be taken on the 
equipment for the station. "I think we 
can get a much better deal if we are not 
forced to take bids," Price said. 
Proponents of the station are now 
contacting record companies and 
television stations who might have used 
equipment for sale. 

The operation will be set up on the 
first floor of the old Russell Library and 
university crews are now working to 
partition the space into studios. 

Students living on campus will be 
assessed a 50 cent fee at registration for 
its AM operation. 

Tuition hike 
not definite 

No definite time or amount has been 
set for a raise in student tuitions for 
Louisiana state universities, according 
to Dr. C. F. Thomas, vice-president of 
academic affairs. 

He added that the increase recom- 
mended by the Coordinating Council for 
Higher Education would probably be 
discussed by the Constitutional Con- 
vention currently being held in Baton 
Rouge. Also, the university presidents 
would be consulted, he said. 

When asked about the approximate 
time for the increase he replied, "It will 
be at least summer (74) or fall (74) 
semester before the tuition will be 

Louisiana's 47th national rank in the 
amount of student tuition paid was the 
basis for the council's recommendation 
to ease the financial plight faced by 
state schools. 

The added funds would be used to 
improve the quality of instruction at 
Louisiana universities, the council 

"I think the voter turnout and the 
percentage of those voting for the 
proposal will be enough to get the ap- 
proval needed to install the FM 
facility," said Jack Damico, SBA 

If approved, licensing for the FM 
station is expected to take 18 months. 
When begun, all students attending the 
Natchitoches campus will pay the 50 
cent fee. 

The amendment stipulates that if 
approval for the FM facility is not 
received, there will be no fees assessed 
the off -campus student. 

The AM station will have a range the 
size of NSU's campus and the FM 
station will cover a much broader area 
reaching approximately five miles in 
all directions.

Nixon stronghold at NSU a bit shaky 


if5J* m Po": off-course but in 

In 1972 a bastion of Nixon support was 
evident on the Northwestern campus 
much as it was in the whole of 
Louisiana. And a similar national 
feeling carried the Republican leader to 
an overwhelming victory and "four 
more years." 

But now after a whirlwind merry-go- 
round called Watergate that support 
seems a bit shaky as indicated by a 
student poll here on campus. 

Of 400 students surveyed 202 stated 
that they did not support President- 
Nixon and his handling of the 
Watergate situation. Another 183 
though, reaffirmed their support in the 
chief executive. 

The tone of the students ranged from 
emphatic "yeses" to "hell, no." 

"I believe in him, if you can find , 
anyone honest in Washington, it is 
President Nixon," said senior Mike 

"Once a Nixon man, always a Nixon 
man. I am for him all the way," said a 
19-year-old sophomore student. 

"I am reluctant to support the 
president because he had to hunt 
around to find yes-men to do his dirty 
work for him," stated Mike Rabalais. 

Another faction of students though 
expressed little concern one way or 
another about the matter. "It's about 
what I expected," said one. "I don't 
really care. It's such a mess now. I 
don't think it really matters anymore 
what anybody thinks," said a medical 
technology major. 

Of those stating that they did not 
support the President's position, only 73 
said that he should resign or be forced 
to resign. Students totaling 73 said they 
thought he should be forced out of of- 

"Our economy is going through a 
crisis. An unexpected change would 
cause more problems," explained 
Debra Dittman for her answer. 

"He, Nixon, hasn't upheld the 
standard a President should," said 
Charlene Brouillette who think* he 
should resign. 

Many students expressed the opinion 
that it would be a nice gesture for him 
to resign voluntarily but did not think it

would be beneficial for the country for 
him to be impeached. 

Some others have a wait and see 
attitude till all the evidence is brought 


"Kick him out," protested a male 
freshman student. 

"We need to threaten him with a real 
strong effort at impeachment, 
something that would keep him in line 
for the next three years," said Dexter 
Grant, a sophomore. 

Some persons expressed the opinion 
that the press was being too hard on 

"I think he's doing the best job ne can 
under that kind of pressure from the 
press," said a 20-year-old PE major. 

"I think he's doing a good job, but 
he's getting the shaft with all the 
publicity. I don't think he is totally 
innocent. No one can believe that. But I 
think he is bearing up well under 
pressure. It's gotten to be a witch

One More Idea 

By Ronald Sanchez 

A Christmas Carol — Part II 

Last week's blast at the student senate's 
apparent obsession for their 'shop early and avoid 
the rush' television escapade was ill-timed, 
considering the follow-up move by this suddenly 
generous group. To recap the proceedings, the 
senate approved a bill two weeks ago allocating 
funds for the color television set purchase for the 
East Kings Hwy. clinical dormitory in 
Shreveport, and in my editorial * last week, I 
pointed to the utter absurdity of the move and the 
possibility of an executive veto by SBA President 
Jack Damico quashing this benevolent senate 

But at last week's Monday night encounter, the 
executive veto failed to garner the necessary 
momentum and the television expenditure again 
received the sanction of a majority of senate 
members. And now sources from the Shreveport 
campus indicate that the girls residing in this 
facility are not stranded in the center of absolute 
isolation and deprivation, contrary to the reports 
furnished the senate members by those vehement 
supporters of the bill. 

Incredibly, these same sources claim that the 
East Kings Hwy, dormitory has three television 
sets already — one on each floor - and that the 
pathetic portrait painted for the SBA was clearly 
a misrepresentation of the truth. 

Whatever the SBA decides to do with their on- 
. again, off -again television matter, I still do not 
believe that they should place themselves in the 
position of doling out compensations for those 
students who are by necessity separated from the 
Natchitoches campus. 

We all learn from our mistakes (hopefully), and 
the student senate should deal with this one 
accordingly. Who knows? The senate might 
decide, in their present Yuletide gift-giving spirit 
to include me on this year's grab-bag Christmas 
gift list. 

Favoritism at the Polls? 

Democracy in election procedures reverted 
perhaps back to the Jacksonian 'spoils system' 
era on this campus at least temporarily last week 
with the Student Union Governing Board- 
sponsored Winter Ball Court extravaganza. The 
highly touted service election boasted 17 
nominees (at least 10 of these Union Board 
members) and the rules of the game (for the first 
few hours) called for a mandatory vote of nine 
(the number of positions open on the Winter Ball 
Court.) The early directive at the polls was: "If 
you don't vote for all nine positions, your vote 
won't count. 

When I appeared to cast my ballot (with the 
intention of voting for only 3 nominees), I was 
instructed by those handling the election that all 
would go for naught if I did not capriciously vote 
for an additional six. I asked one Union Board 
member the logic behind this unorthodox 
authority and she told me simply it was "because 
there are nine girls running who deserve the 

Increasingly frustrated, I then cornered another 
Union Board member about the compulsory 
nine-count. He said: "I think you can figure out 
our reasoning behind it." 

Well apparently someone did, because the 
practice was halted by noon, and students were 
from then on allowed to vote for nine or less. 

Possibly the entire Winter Ball format and other 
such elective 'honors' need revamping. Nominees 
for this Court are now selected by the individual 
Union Board Committees, bringinig, about what 
seems to be a disproportionate ljnion Board 
representation on the ballot. According to a bill 
recently passed by the SBA senate, the 
Homecoming Court, a similar situation, 
"represents the entire Student Body , but its 
selection is limitedtoonlya small percentage of 
students, therefore causing a loss of student 
privileges." -The senate understandably 
recognized a lack of true student representation 
on this year's Homecoming Court and moved to 
amend this practice. Should the Winter Ball 
Court be an exception? 

I understand that the Winter Ball is promoted 
under the authority of the Student Union 
Governing Board. And I realize that this 
organization has the right to administer this 
function as it sees fit. But just because a system 
has been perpetuated in the past, or just because 
the same system was carried out this year, there 
is no real basis for its continuatioa 

The Union Board annually stages the Winter 
Ball to honor the service of outstanding girls on 
campus. And this year's court lives up to this 
definition. But to insure this event as such, and to 
prevent it from becoming just another Tuesday 
night Union Board bash , something needs to be 

Beer proposal: Round 3 

The Special Services Committee of the SBA last 
week sent out a teaser--the simple black-on-white 
announcement of a "coming soon" PETITION 
printed on the front page of the Current Sauce-to 
herald one more try at obtaining permission for 
beer in the Student Union from the State Board of 
Education. This week, the petition is "here" and 
students supporting this long-sought after 
proposal need to demonstrate their convictions by 
cooperating. (See page l for details.) 

Two years ago the beer proposal was "shafted" 
in the State Board arena, and last year, the 
alcoholic beverage question somehow got lost in 
the shuffle around the SBA office. The third 
attempt, though, could prove to be the charm.

They talk, we listen! 


By Dr. Hiram Gregory 

American Indians have 
gradually awakened. It has 
been a long winter's sleep. 
After the 1870's, Indian 
military and political 
resistance to the United 
States was essentially a 
memory to be passed on to the 
children by old men around 
the winter fires. After the first 
Wounded Knee, an American 
Indian Mei Lai, Indians 
became a silent minority. 
Reservations, designed to 
isolate Indians and to contain 
them, eventually became 
symbolic wells of Indian life. 
In traditional fashion they set 
about utilizing even those 
environments as best they 

Now, a number of Indians 
have become urbanites, 
working in industry and 
business. The last Indian 
removal act of the Federal 
government was to offer, in 
the 1950's, incentive to leave 

the reservations. Indian 
people carried their traditions 
and their identity into urban 
life. Their rural relatives 
remained a source of cultural 
renewal. Reservations, 
consequently, became a 
symbolic "home," an Indian 
place in a white man's world. 

Urban living, often under 
marginal economic con- 
ditions, and higher education 
have given Indian people new 
voices. By the 1960's Indian 
college students had taken a 
stand and new activism was 
born. Numbers of these young 
Americans have entered the 
ranks of whites and blacks 
who have been outspoken, 
both critically and con- 
structively, within the last 
decade and a half. Like it or 
not, the governmental and 
economic structures in this 
country have had to listen. 

Indian voices, accusingly 
sometimes, angry at other 

times, began speaking out 
about issues. Poverty, 
educational inequities, public 
health, and the bureaucracy 
of the Indian Bureau were 
the issues. Anthropologists, 
earning PhD's., selling books 
and becoming secure but 
seldom involved with Indian 
people or their needs, began 
to change when real Indian 
opinions were heard. 

Now Indian leaders have 
arisen. College students, 
lawyers, doctors, and 
business people have been 
welded to more traditional 
tribal leadership. A new 
coalition is forming with its 
roots in Indian organizational 
principles. Indian peoples 
have asked for participation in 
the society. 

However, the edge of 
anger can still creep in. No 
one forgets broken promises! 
Some militant organizations

Objectivity on and off the field? 

Dear Editor 

In the latest edition of the 
Current Sauce, Dan Mc- 
Donald unjustly blasted the 
credibility of Louisiana Tech 
and USL in an article per- 
taining to the suspension of 
two McNeese football players. 
In fact, Mr. McDonald's so- 
called "joke" is highly 
slanderous in nature. I have 
attended USL recently, and I 
doubt seriously if anything 
suggested in Mr. Mc- 
Donald's "joke" would 
happen at USL now or in the 

I realize that an editor has 
the right to express his 
opinions in his editorials. But 
this right should be ac- 
companied by the desire for 
objectivity and fairness - 
especially in a sports 

Mr. McDonald once stated 
that the Associated Press 
should conduct a "fair, un- 
biased, informative, and 
correct poll." Since a poll is a 

form of an opinion I suggest 
that Mr. McDonald should 
follow his own guidelines in 
expressing his own opinions. 

David Dore 

(Editor's Note: To reply to 
your charges against Sports 
Editor Dan McDonald, I think 
it is important that we define 
the right of an editor to offer 
an opinion (editorial or 
otherwise) which happens to 
differ from those of others. A 
reference to the possibility of 
complete disregard of rules 
infractions was made in 
McDonald's last "Calling the 
Shots" sports column, but the 
comment could hardly be 
termed inappropriate con- 
sidering the legal hassle now 
facing these two universities 
with the NCAA. 

The point of the "joke", if it 
can be termed a "joke" at all, 
is that Louisiana Tech and 
USL have apparently 
managed to get away with 
quite a bit of misdealing 

before their national censure. 
Instead of being termed 
slanderous (which refers to 
spoken language rather than 
written print, in the first 
place), McDonald's criticism 
of the inequitable balance 
would appear to be his duty as 
a sportswriter "Calling the 
Shots" as he views them. 

I think it's important, too, to 
notice that McDonald no- 
where in the particular article 
claims that this would 
happen at either university, 
but rather that certain past 
activities seem to indicate a 
less than moralistic attitude in 
regard to sports. 

Objectivity and fairness, at 
least in my estimation as 
editor of this publication, does 
necessarily represent the 
basis of journalism. But topics 
need to be explored - and 
opinions need to be expressed 
for a total dissemination of 
views. McDonald's "Calling 

the Shots" does just that. 

A care-package for Vetstown residents 

Dear Editor, 

As a married student living 
in Vetstown, thereby 
separated from the normal 
flow of student campus life, I 
hearby request from the 
Student Senate of the SBA 
that they deliver one color TV 
to the Vetstown Apartment on 
or before Nov. 20. This will 
give us time to get the set 
tuned-in before the 
Thanksgiving football games. 

I make this request on 
behalf of the approximately 60 
students who live in Vetstown. 
We were prompted to make 
this request by the senate's 

action last week when they 
granted NSU's East Kings 
Hwy. dormitory a similiar 
request. Being of similar 
number, we don't feel that our 
request is out of line. 

Having recently visited the 
dormitory in Shreveport, I 
could find none of the 
"raunchy" living quarters 
that were described by one of 
the staunch defenders of the 
bill. Quite to the contrary, I 
found living quarters to be 
equal to most on the NSU 
campus and the sprawling, 
multi-tiered lobby is among 
the best I have seen. 

We feel that an ideal 
location for our TV would be in 
the center of the parking lot so 
all Vetstown residents would 
have easy access to it. This 
location would also provide 
convenient entertainment for 
those residents who cannot 
afford to go to the Drive-In. 

Robert Wade 

P. S. I am writing this letter 
to prove that someone besides 
SBA "Big Wigs" Jack Damico 
and Rodney Harrington can 
get a letter published. 
Perhaps we can hear from 
other students now! 

Dear Editor, 

Please allow me to correct 
one error in your editorial last 
week, "The Liberated 
Speaker Series." Besides the 
funds provided by student fees 
for the Distinguished Lecture 
Series, an appropriation of 
$6000 annually has been 
received from the general 
university budget under the 
account of Lectures and 

About this liberated speaker series 

Concerts. These funds are 
used to sponsor speakers on 
campus sometimes by paying 
the entire fee ; other times the 
fees are split with the student 
funds. This enables the 
Distinguished Lecture Series 
to provide a better and more 
diverse speaker series. 

Thank you, 
Thomas N. Whitehead 

(Editor's Note: Your point 
of correction is well-taken, but 
I cannot help wondering if the 
university's contribution to 
this Speaker Series warrants 
overt interference with the 
selection process of the 
speakers. After all, the pur- 
pose of the university is, I've 
been told, to allow the 
students as much self- 
expression as possible 

Movement (A. I. M.) have 
resulted. Quieter, more 
constructive organizations 
like the National Congress of 
American Indians or the 
Coalition of Eastern Native 
Americans have embarked on 
a new path.

stereotype is no more. As the

166 commuter applications 
went through the Housing 
Committee, the governing 
body which approves off- 
campus housing, this 
semester. The committee 
processed 311 applications in 

Schwartz admitted that 
there was no way to know just 
how many of these commuting 
claims were, in fact, 
legitimate, but added that the 
Housing Department does not 
make a practice of checking 
Natchitoches appartment 
complexes for possible 
violators. He said that the 
most common way for a 
Northwestern illegal off- 
campus resident to surface is 
through an altercation with 
Campus Security or some 
other departmental agency. 

The Natchitoches landlord, 
viewing the available space 
filled by their Northwestern 
tenants, is likewise caught up 
in the housing subterfuge. 
Said one apartment house 
manager: "The university 
never checks who's living 
here. If you manage to get 
them, it would seem you're 
home free." And another: 
"No, they (the university) 
never question me about my 
residents. They never have. Of 
course, I wouldn't give out 

that information anyway." 

A member of the Housing 
Committee claimed that while 
the commuter excuse is 
prevalent (because it is 
automatic), medical excuses 
have come in vogue to an 
extent. This committee 
member claimed that is is a 
fairly simple procedure to 
obtain a medical excuse from 
a licensed practitioner at- 
testing to a student's inability 
to cope with a dormitory 
situation. He said: "I would 
think that almost anyone 
would know how to go about 
getting the proper papers to 
prove the medical hardship. 
And we rarely, if ever, check 
on these medical applications 
for their validity." 

While housing authorities 
require on-campus students to 
fill the dormitory space 
available, students still balk 
at what they term a 
"deprivation of rights." And 
while some students still 
persist in exerting these rights 
through under-wraps off- 
campus residence, they still 
face the possibility of eventual 
detection and its results. 

What will happen after you 
receive your diploma and 
walk down the aisle to become 
one of NSU's alumni? Will you 
find a job? Should you con- 
tinue your education? 

There are several ways a 
candidate for graduation can 
prepare himself for the future. 
One of the most important of 
these is often overlooked, that 
of opening a file at Nor- 
thwestern's placement office. 

The placement office, 
located in the Student Union, 
is free of charge to students. 

Miss Agatha Newitt, 
director, and her two graduate 
assistants, Mickey Murphy 
and Richard Rogers, offer 

several avenues of help.First, 
they recommend that as soon 
as a student obtains senior 
status he open a file at the 
placement office. This con- 
sists of writing a short paper 
giving information about the 
student's background, in- 
terests, and education. A short 
form is furnished as a guide. 
The office also makes 
available to graduates the 
College Placement Annual, 
which lists firms and job 
opportunities in all 50 states. 
This annual is free from the 
placement office. 

The office is not an em- 
ployment agency and doesn't 
guarantee jobs. However, 

they can arrange interviews 
with possible employers. Each 
month, representatives from 
various firms across the 
nation visit NSU to interview 
seniors and find personnel 
suited to their needs. The 
office receives bulletins from 
companies advertising job 
opportunities, also. These 
bulletins are posted outside 
the placement office and sent 
to the department head 

Of course the office doesn't 
place every student, but they 
are concerned with most who 
apply for jobs. Many com- 
panies request a copy of the 
applicant's file from the 


placement office so they will 
have more information about 
a prospective employe. If the 
student neglected to open a 
file, the office can only refer 
the request to the registrar's 
office. For the cost of $1, the 
student will receive a copy of 
his transcript for the 
registrar's office. However if 
a student has a file, the office 
immediately sends a copy of 
the file and a copy of the 
student's transcript, free of

Council donates goods 
to local Red Cross 

The Panhellenic Council 
assembled its traditional 
Thanksgiving basket of 
canned goods, which were 
donated by campus sorority 
members, Wednesday. 
Accepting the donation of 

canned goods for the Nat- 
chitoches chapter of the Red 
Cross was Mrs. Carmen 
Breazeale, chairman. 

According to Mrs. Lucille 
Hendricks, dean of women, 
this donation and the 




We're surprised 
that they don't claim 
it cures cancer. 

The makers of STP Oil Treatment make it 
sound like a fountain of youth for old cars and a 
super tonic for new cars. 

They claim it does everything from protecting 
engine parts to reducing heat, noise, friction, and 

They say it's the "racer's edge." Whatever 
that means. Well, here's what STP Oil Treatment 
really is. 

It's a can of thick goo that makes the oil it's . 
added to thicker. 

But if you want a thicker oil. you can just buy 
a heavier grade of oil (like 40 or 50 weight) in the 
first place. Or if you want a "multi-viscosity" oil 
(like 10W-30), you can just buy that. too. And 
save the expense of STP. For most cars under 
almost all driving conditions, the right motor oil 
is all you'll ever need for your car's crankcase. 

The very nicest thing we can say about STP Oil 
Treatment is that it's probably a waste of money. 
But there are less nice things, too. 

STP can change the proportions of chemical 
additives (detergent, anti-rust, etc.) already for- 
mulated in most motor oils, and it can make cold 
weather starts harder. 

Mercedes Benz even says it could invalidate 
their new car warranties. 

Many motor oil manufacturers, including 
Kendall, Quaker State, Pennzoil and Valvoline. 
advise you not to use additives like STP 

Even Consumer Reports (July 1971) says you 
don't need STP. The makers of STP must have 
forgotten to mention all that. And what do you 
have on the other side? "The racer's edge." 
Whatever that means.
